Re: field recorders

Radio Shack Optimus Micro-36 microcassette recorder.  Has surprised me on a
few occasions with the clarity with which it picks up sounds as far away as
40ft, even in the presence of sea sounds.  I got another one after the last
one conked out - 6 years of solid notetaking use.  $30.
