I see from my database that I was able to record a Gould's Wattled Bat 
and Southern Freetail Bat (both around 30 kHz call), quite 
satisfactorily, using Olympus LS10 at 96 kHz, and a Telinga stereo 
mic.  (The Telinga uses electret capsules but I don't know which 
ones).  I'm sure I tried the EM172s and that they worked too, but I 
can't easily find an example.  I'm a bit rusty on bats, haven't 
recorded any for a little while :-)  Whatever you've got, just try it, 
you will get something for sure.
