Dictaphone for patriarchal blessings

Postby drepouille » Sun Oct 07, 2012 8:12 am

Our patriarch's secretary says her tape recorder is worn out, and I have been given the assignment to purchase a new one. Is there standard or recommended equipment?

I'd check with the distribution center. They might have something.

In this day and age, I'd expect it to be tape-less/all-electronic. But I'm not sure where you'd find a way to play it back with the usual foot pedal for transcribing.

The last time we had a change in our Patriarch I contacted the FM manager and they ordered something.
I'd give them a try.

Just ordered a handheld digital recorder

We just went through this. We just called a new patriarch and the old cassette recorder finally gave up. We checked with the FM group and all they had available from the Church was another cassette recorder. So, our stake just spent $50 and bought him a Sony handheld digital recorder. He's been using it and loves it. His secretary loves it too!

Here is the FM reply:
The FM Group can order one for the Stake through our Purchasing Department. The cost of the machine is $508.00 with an approximate 10 day lead time. If the Stake chooses to have the FM Group order it, the Stake would need to give the FM Group a check for $508.00 made out to 'Corporation of the Presiding Bishop'.
