I was on a submarine back in the mid 1980's. 30 years later I'm hoping to do audio recordings / interviews (in person recordings as well as teleconference recordings) with those that served on my boat. I'm checking out some wireless headsets systems today. There's a local guitar shop with an 8 channel system for in person group recordings that might be cool to use. As for recording teleconferencing calls Skype might work but would prefer to use something open-source
