Hi Zach, I have a Traveler but I recommend you try one before buying. It
just does not do a real good job of staying put, at least on my big Polish
head. I am looking for something with full ear cups to replace it. I like
its PTT but I have not had any luck tying it to my FT 60 and a recorder.
Patrick suggested a Rat Shack adaptor but I have not had a chance to try
that yet:  a Y adaptor  PN:  2102953.

I tried a Warren Gregoire headset (see QST mag for the ad) but it was toy
like and sent it back (twice)

I decided to just have the recorder in my pocket or nearby and that seems to
pick up my side of the audio for further checking. When I'm real lazy at
home, I have my TS-2000 and HRD record the pass and listen later. 

73, Ted K7TRK

Subject: [amsat-bb] Heil Traveler and a Recorder

Does anyone on this list have a Heil Traveler
(http://rffun.com/catalog/mics/1348.html and
http://rffun.com/catalog/mics/3838.jpg for the adapter to the TH-D7A) that
they are using on their HT, and at the same time have a recorder hooked up?
I am hoping to get the Traveler soon (not pleased with the audio the speaker
mic is producing), but I don't know how to hook the recorder in line.  I
seem to recall a similar post pertaining to this subject about 2-3 weeks
ago, but after a brief search of the archives I could not find it.
