Hi Richard and all

This is for field recordings/oral histories using Marantz PMD 660's.  We are
wanting to purchase bigger cards, 2 or 4 Gig, so the operator doesn't feel
pressured into getting back to the Center after just one interview.  They will
record in wav format.  http://www.zzounds.com/item--MARPMD660

Thanks for the replies thus far.

Cheers
Marie
