    Щ is very close to Ш, thus it belongs to noisy consonants.
    For Й, I am not quite so sure, since the sound it designates is quite unique in the Russian alphabet.

    Й - resonant consonant (voiced, fricative, soft, mediopalatal)
    Щ - this is a letter, not a sound. There are currently two ways to pronounce this letter:
    Petersburg - [ш'ч]
    Old-Moscow - [ш'ш'], i.e long soft ш (the same is for letters combinations сч, зч)
