I had some experience with throat mikes in the army some years ago. The always were very muffled and hard to hear. The best ones for use in our noisy half-tracks were a "lip mike" which sat right on your upper lip like a mustache. They were crisp and clear. They were a carbon mike, like the throat mikes.
noise cancelling mikes used in air plane service.
If you are really competitive you would not want be talking to anyone, ever heard Hamilton in FORMULA ONE telling off the pits for talking to him when he is trying to race !! but if you need it then operating the PTT is a big problem, not having it on VOC and causing pandemonium, trying to find the ptt button with gloves on etc not easy solution to a very variable problem. But the helicopter system must be worth looking at..keep us posted
Oh and throat mics are rubbish, tried that with the french military, also used a device called a moustache mic that is worn over the ears like glasses but has the mic under the nose, hence the name moustache....it was a closed waterproof design that picked up the vibration of your voice hitting the plastic case rather than directly on the mic membrane. and could be used to operate a voc, but the quality was rubbish and would get uncomfortable. we used them in NBC gear inside a face mask. beurk !!!
make your own. www.parts-express.com tactile speakers and mics with a little trial and error you can make better then what you can buy.
