    Does anyone out here have one of these, that can give me any info on it? I've searched and found very little. I got it in a "Lot" sale. Can't test it yet.

    Looks like a standard dish mic. The parabolic dish allows the mic to pic up sounds in a narrow span which eliminates adjacent noise.

    This allows the listner to hear further than without the dish.

    Cheers

    Yup, parabolic -- or dish -- microphone. Handy for recording what the players are saying at a sports event, or for recording bird sounds, etc.

    Goldak mic setup. They do utilities location equipment. Been around since the 30's. They have a couple of mic setups, which appears you have one of their older ones. It's more than likely been down a sewer or two.

    Delta, I'll bet you're right about the sewer reference. The little that I've been able to gather on it, is these were also used to find A/C leaks and such. Also, have a look at the picture I've included. It must be very old, because, (702) area code is no longer used throughout Nevada, and hasn't for many many years now. As Las Vegas started really getting a big population, the area code (702) became exclusive to Las Vegas. Reno, Carson City, and all other outlying areas changed to (775).
