SAS Code for Soundex function


I am using the SOUNDEX function in SAS to count names.
My data includes many hispanic names, so I would like to modify the code for the soundex function to
include the letter H. I would like to group H with the # 3. so 3 would be assigned to D,T,H.
Can someone kindly please send me the modified sas code for soundex that groups H into the # group.

Currently, the soundex function uses this formula:
1. B, P, F, V
2. C, S, K, G, J, Q, X, Z
3. D, T
4. L
5. M, N
6. R
