I do however carry a minidisc player and have used it in the past to
record sounds through its mic in socket. I believe i-pods and some other
mp3 players have microphone input sockets.
Ah but wouldn't you have to carry a microphone around with you? Well no -
a loudspeaker is a microphone in reverse, so I plugged in the earpieces
into the mic-in socket and then recited my car reg number into it.
The signal strength bar moved as I spoke and listening to the recording I
could make out every word. Then I realised that most people have cameras
on their mobile phones ( I don't have a phone) and could photograph the
details, so it wasn't such a good idea after all. :-/
You can't photograph something someone tells you, so perhaps the dictation
machine idea still has legs. Mind you, modern phones also have the
sound-recorder facility built in.
I will add a pen an small notebook to my cycling mini bag to go along with
the emergency tool kit & spare tube.
Everyone should always carry a pen or pencil anyway.
They should, it would be useful to take down the cyclist's number.
