    For simple digital audio recorders I feel that both Sony and Olympus make quality units.

    Sometimes you can find a recently discontinued model at a really fantastic price if you keep your eyes open.

    For specific models I'll leave that to others.

    (My cheap Sony will record something like 40 hours continuously at very good quality...)

    I have a nice Sony digital that is still for sale. Includes the software, cable, manual.

    Comes in handy for recording those pesky cops . . .

    PM me if interested and I'll get you the details.

    I use my iPhone. You can download a app called 'Qik' that streams the audio/video to a site on the internet. That way no matter what happens to your phone you still have the recording. It works very well and both the audio and video are great quality.

    There is this porcupine gig, but I think it sends it to everyone and there little brother. Seems like an easy way to go though, just dial and then there it goes.

    From there website:

    "About PAC Crew 411
    Porcupine 411 is a rapid message distribution network.

    You can use Porcupine 411 to participate in our growing liberty movement. Some things which Porcupine 411 can be used for include:

    Locations of speed traps and sobriety checkpoints
    Reporting unusual or improper police activity (Copwatch)
    Distress calls in case of roadside detention or imminent arrest
    Upcoming social events, activities or almost anything else of immediate interest to liberty lovers
    Here’s how it works:

    To notify people of something, call 1-360-722-5411 and leave a message after the beep. Porcupine 411 will then distribute an audio file containing your message to everyone who is subscribed to the list.
    To receive the audio notifications when someone leaves a message, subscribe to the mailing list using the form below.
    In addition to email, you can receive messages via podcast or iTunes).

    You can also subscribe most MMS-capable wireless phones and receive the messages directly on your phone whenever you are away from home! To do this, you’ll need to subscribe using your phone’s MMS email address, which may be different from its text email address. (To find out your phone’s MMS email address, email a picture to your home email from your phone, and use the email address it came from.) Keep in mind that your wireless provider may charge you for receipt of MMS messages."

    Does this one erase everything when it is shut off. The owner would just "think" he had the goods on the officer.

    I use the "Qik Video" app on my iphone. The app lets you stream to the web so say a cop can't delete his fine actions. He can smash the phone to crap and his handywork will be for the world to see on youtube

    The Ridley report is how I found OCDO.org Amazing how many officers break the law.

    There was a hugey list of ridly reports on free staters (must say I dont agree with all they do, like wanting to drive without licenses), and there was only one OCDO vid. I saw a ridly report where they were doing a clean up and a cop approached and Ridley used his cell phone to record on the purcupine 411 thing. I thought it was a good concept. I like the Iphone thing better though that has recordings go right on the web.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Nope, writes to the chip, just like every other digital recorder used in meetings.
