OK; I would have to say that the Skythumper mic (~$25/new) has both decent noise-cancelling qualities as well as massive modulation. They are also fairly cheap too. Not a bad idea to go with that choice.
On the other hand, the Turner Road King 56 noise-cancelling mic (~$65) is the best of the best in the noise-cancelling class of mics - IMO. They aren't cheap; but the TX audio is far more natural sounding than the Skythumper.
Never was impressed at all with the Astatic 636 noise-cancelling ("N/C") mics. They don't modulate as well nor do they cancel noise as well as the other two mics mentioned above.
The RF Limited.2018Xtreme echo mic (~$55) is capable of noise-cancelling via a switch. The audio is the best of them all. You don't have to turn on the echo or the talkback (yes; it has talkback too). I like that mic on either a base radio or a mobile; it sounds that well.
Noise-cancelling mics in a mobile is a smart idea, even in a newer, quiet vehicle.
The one rule when using a noise-cancelling mic that one must remember, is to remember to keep the rubber lip guard right on your upper lip at all times when talking. I think that it is funny when guys use a N/C type mic like it was a D-104 mic and try to talk a couple of feet away from the mic. Ya just cannot do that.
xtreme 2018 with echeo off and nc on this mike works great too
another one [if you have or can find one] is a astatic 575
these are the best mobile mics ive ever used and i gotta box full of mics
but these 3 arent ever in there
So I bought a ST-65DX from Amazon, borrowed a RK-56 pre-barjan, and an Astatic 636.
I get great reports on the Skythumper. Audio is loud and clear. It does clear up the noise issues I have.
The Road King is a bit quieter, but still sounds good, and does a great job with the background noise.
The Astatic sounds tinny, just a little but enough to be noticed. It doesn't do as well as the other two with the background noise. However this is a post-barjan Astatic.
Thank you all for the responses, I got the ST-65DX based on your recommendations and am quite pleased with it. Especially for the 30 dollars with shipping I paid for it.
Next project will be adding channel up/down buttons to it.

Post your results if you try it, I have a stock mike that is shot.
