I'd like to first apologize to everyone who's a part of both lists and will
 receive two copies of this mail.
 We work on acoustic communication in Othopteran insects and we were
 looking for a sound level meter for our recordings. We already own a Bruel
 and Kjaer with the 1/4th inch mike but unfortunately buying another one
 would be too expensive for us. So we were looking for alternatives, any
 suggestions would be very helpful.
 We need a SPL meter (which is cheaper than the B and K) with a compatible
 mike that has a good frequency response between 2kHz and 100 kHz. It
 should have an AC output to record from. It will be principally used
 outdoors, so it should be fairly rugged.
 The only other company we have heard of is Larson and Davies. They seem to
 have a mike that has the requisite frequency response (2250). But it isn't
 clear if the SPL meter 824 has the same range. Does anyone know about
 these products?
 Thanks for your time,
 Natasha Mhatre.
