I'm trying to put together a relatively inexpensive, weather proof
recording system to set up on the North Slope of Alaska to record bird
vocalizations (in stereo) during the spring/summer. This i for
scientfic research. The weather there can be kind of sketchy, with
rain or snow and/or wind on any given day. I need to be able to leave
the equipment out and not worry about it.
So, what I'm trying to find is EITHER:
(1) An all weather recorder with built in mics. (something like the
Zoom H2 for example, but this is not weatherproof), or
(2) A pair of weather proof mics that I can piggy back on one another,
or, a pair of piggy-backed mics with an all-weather enclosure. I
could then hook this stuff up to a recorder protected in a pelican
case or something.
I'm going to need 3 or 4 of these recording systems, so they can't
cost a whole lot. Say around $600 for each.
Any one have suggestions?
