Today I discovered another useful asset for opportunistic recordings. We had spent some time at a large shopping centre in central Melbourne where we were meeting a friend we had not seen in years. My partner noticed that one of the swing doors in the ladies toilet made a very loud squeaking noise. Once again not wanting to miss an opportunity I set up the R09 at an appropriate level, set it to record and gave it to my partner and asked her to go back into the ladies toilet and open the door a couple of times. Having a partner travelling with you who pays attention to the sounds around her means I know effectively have two sets of ears. This can only be a good thing
