Hi Doug,


How are you recording your qso's when handheld? Are you just recording your
spoken side of the qso or do you have the recorder tied into to the
earphones somehow. (on the base of course, one can just pick up from a
speaker jack into the recorder)

Also, a CAUTION on some of the inexpensive recorders. Most do not have an
on/off switch or APO function, so you need to pop the batteries in and out
which is kind of annoying. 

73, Ted

For those of you who have not already invested in a digital voice
recorder for recording your hand-held satellite ops (highly
recommended), I ran across the Sanyo Digital Voice Recorder -
ICR-FP600D at eCost for only $12.99 + S&H (refurb).  See URL:

Note: I do not own this model, so I cannot comment on it's quality or
features, but for this price it appears to be a pretty good deal.  The
only downside might be that this model does not have USB connectivity,
rather audio is stored on an SD card (1GB SD card is included
according to the description, but some other places selling this model
have reported that this model doesn't come with the SD card...), which
can be removed and inserted into a PC SD card reader for transferring
the files to your computer.

For those that are interested, you can find the user manual at URL:
