Hello all,

I've been a lurker for about a month.  In the past year I've become
interested in recording bird song and have been slowly familiarizing

I just acquired a used Sony parabolic reflector, model PBR-400. I
wondered if anyone has any experience using this model, and if there
are any tips/tricks/idiosyncrasies I should know about.

I hope to be able to join in more with the discussions as I gain more
experience; I've found your conversations so far to be most helpful
and informative.
