The mics would also have to be theft and vandal proof. Apart from the usual=

Very observant of you, indeed, Klaus...

"We need another way of thinking and measuring noise. For example, I find i=

Great point.

And, yes - it can be done; it is a simple matter of finding the right spons=
ors, educating the populace on such issues and instating mics in numbers at=
 various locations; this could also become an added responsibility for park=
 rangers and fire watchers, in order to contribute to their existing data s=
ets on wildlife activities etc.

This brings to mind the need for permanent, wireless (satellite-solar-power=
ed and water proof mics).
