There was good placement in spite of my reservation on time difference
stereo with separated mics. I noticed some effects which were due to
cancellation of distant sounds due to an echo, probably a ground echo.
At 00:50 there is a periodic cancellation at 119Hz corresponding to an echo=
path of 1.43 metres, corresponding to about 700mm or tripod height. This is=
why I often try a mic rig mounted low.
The prop plane at 01:05 arrived centre and departed right.
At 09:50 the helicopter rotor had a blade frequency of 15Hz and a
stabilising tail rotor frequency of around 95Hz. There was a doppler shift=
as it passed from about 95Hz to 73Hz which gives a very approximate speed o=
The helicopter arrives right and departs half left. It is flying quite fast=
as the rotor blades are near to producing a shock wave. At the end, in the=
distance, it turns and we hear a bit of rotor shock wave.
At 14:30 a passing boat at 77Hz showed another echo cancellation effect.
There was a distant passerine bird species at 06:30 which was poorly placed=
and a brief seagull at centre at 14:20 and one to the right at 17:46.
