Re: [podcasters] mobile recording on the cheap
- Hmm... if that's the case, perhaps we need to rethink the requirements a
bit. Do you have a laptop? If so, could you perhaps buy an AC adapter, a
$75 pair of mikes, and record on the laptop? (With whoever's not driving
running the laptop, of course... not worth getting into an accident.)

Before I bought my Edriol R-09 ... I had (have) two Olympus Digital Voice
Recorders. I liked the first one so much that I bought another one with
more memory (longer recording times).
For what you want it for .. I would go with one of those. My experience
with them is that if you want to record a business meeting, or a student
recording a lecture, or a discussion in a vehicle ... they are fine.
My Olympus is the VN-480PC but it is no longer available. The VN-4100PC is
.. Amazon has it for less than $50.00. NOTE: the "PC" part of the name is
important with these devices. That means they have a USB port to transfer
the audio files to a PC. Otherwise you have to import it, in real time, via
the computer mic jack.
Yes, a Zoom H-2 or better .. would work but cost a *lot* more.
