I also use the Audio Technica MB 3K with very good results on a boom.

Have a look at the Audio Technica Pro 31


Pretty good mike and can be mounted on a stand.  I use mine on a boom.

There’s an audio and feature comparison of the two on YouTube at

I’ve had the RE20 since long before the RE320 was released.  I didn’t purchase it to use with SSB radios or VOX, but it’s ended up that way in the interest of minimizing clutter and dangling microphone cables.  I’ve never had an issue with VOX operation, and can’t say it behaves any differently that most ham mics I’ve used.  I’d expect the 320 to be similar.  To be honest, I normally use a foot switch, but that’s not the fault of the mic.  A good downward expander or noise gate does a lot for clean VOX.  From the demo, it sounds like the 320 would require a bit less high frequency EQ than I find necessary with the RE20, and the slightly higher output level might be a plus, too.
