Hi Bill and Ted,

I have used a T-adapter just has Bill described and it worked fine.  I have
also used a second handheld on the receive side with headphones and a
recording device wired on the T-adapter and that works well too.  Finally, I
have used the speaker mike with the FT60 and 'palmed' the recorder in my
hand that his holding the mic...sometimes it's a bit clumsy, but it works.
