No matter what choice you make you'll need a recorder... One with line in.
I've found that this one works the best, but here are a few choices for you.
The Best: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search...tialSearch=yes
There are others, just google mp3 line in recording.
Now for the setups. The toughest set up is the FM Car Radio . For this you'll need 6 feet of wire (two 3 foot strips )
a set of plugshttp://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2104061
and a "Y" adapterhttp://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2062454
To wire this up you'll need to look at this...
Your pin 3 is the ground (-) and pins 1 and 2 are the inputs from each speaker (+).
Now what you wanna do is take one plug and hook the wire up to pins 1 and 3, then take the other and hook the wire up to pins 2 and 3.
Liquid solder works well, be neat and be sure the contacts dont cross. Also on you wire you should notice a plain wire and one with a line or broken line on it, be sure to use the broken line to hook up pin 3 on both plugs.
That was the hard part.
Now open your trunk and hook the wires up , the pin 3 wires hook up to the - side of your speakers and the pin 1 and 2 hook up the the + side of the right and left speakers (pin 1 for left, pin 2 for right)and hook the pin 3 to the neg.
Plug both jacks into your "Y" adapter and then plug that into your MP3. Turn you radio on and then record with the MP3 to test the set up. You should get crystal clear stereo sound. If its not stereo recheck you wiring to you speakers.
Now your good to go with this system.
Another way that I found little easier when at a drive-in is to pull your car cd player out and plug rca cables into the back of it (if your cd player has that option) then plug your rca cables into a Y adapter you can pick up at radioshack for a couple of bucks. Plug your adapter into the mic port of mp3 player and there you go.
You can also use a Boom Box with your "Y" splitter
If you have a new style radio, it may already have line out jacks on it, then just some plugs are needed.
These will vary with the model of radio. This model has a built in record function for audio recording.http://www.hookedontronics.com/show_....jsp?cid=18759
Other methods used for "Audio Capping"
1. Fm Radio Receiver:
Some MP3 players have an FM record option. This one does that for you.http://www.meritline.com/sandisk-4gb...--p-67272.aspx
2. Infrared or (IR) Receiver:http://harc.com/elt-compact-infrared-receiver-600.html
3. FM Band Broadcast Receiver:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Beltpack.html
4. Induction Loop Receiver:http://www.amazon.com/Induction-Loop...3734170&sr=1-9
The IR is line of sight, so you'll need to be close to the transmitter and the pendant should be worn in plain sight.
The FM can be concealed..also the FM picks up the signal outside, so no need to go in.
Either of these is a sizable investment, so do some research on devices you want to try.
I have found both for under $90.
Just hook up the "Y" adapter... One end goes to the receiver, one to the MP3 and the last goes to a set of ear buds(you need to hear what your recording).
Well that should do it, now you have your audio files....
Contact your favorite group and send them the files.
Rapidshare or other file hosting works well for uploading the files.
Be sure to name them something other than what they are and password them.
Email you group with the link and password.
With enough people helping out CAMs should be a thing of the past...
