It’s been a while since I posted my first attempt at recording a show in my car, this attempt was recorded not that long after that but I’d forgotten to post it, hopefully, it’s not too boring.

This is the previously mentioned dictation device I used

An article that explains how to remove noise using Audacity, which was what dodddummy was talking about when he commented on my first show on HPR2377

Link to Dave’s (thelovebug) page and the original John Kulp’s $2 microphone show that kicked all this off. Looking forward to getting a chance to catch up with Dave’s drive into work show. Refer to Dave’s episode HPR2400 and John Kulp’s original $2 microphone show HPR1812

Link to the microphone originally recommended By John Kulp

A link from StackExchange that details the wiring diagram for Kenwood style microphone used in many portable Amateur radios

This is a small article in Wikipedia that covers the Electret Microphone which is the type used in the microphone recommended by John Kulp, Dave (thelovebug) and now me.

Audio quality

Good to hear from you again. I really enjoyed this episode, the audio quality was definitely on point... those little lapel mics are great!

Don't worry too much about the structure of this episode, you were recording to make a point and you made it really well.

Re Audio quality

Hi thelovebug, many thanks for the kind comment glad you enjoyed the show, yes I couldn't believe what a difference it made swapping microphones.

Great Sound Quality

What an improvement! I confess, I couldn't even finish the last ep due to the audio quality (and my standards are low), but this episode has fantastic sound. Great job!
