Re: Mic Info

Just another comment, not to do with the mics, but the
headset.  For the birds, I use one of those Radio Shack
900MHz wireless headsets.  I can walk around the shack,
and even go outside if I want, and the audio is quite good.
Just plug the 900MHz into the headphone jack, and you're
in business.   I guess you could also use the cheaper
IR types, but I haven't tried them.  I bought the headset when
RS put them on sale.....they do that from time to time.

Works great for me.
