Recording Panels at Conventions

Does anyone have any experience making reasonably good audio recordings of panels at conventions?  I’m looking for something reasonably priced and simple to do the job. Any advice would be appreciated. Assume for the sake of this conversation, that I have the permission of those involved.

      Really wanted to to be at Boskone this year, but hotel costs were a bit prohibitive given that I may have a bigger trip to take later this year. I figure I missed another one of those always enjoyable BwB parties… didn’t I?

      Yes, Cheryl joined the staff as Non-Fiction editor in January.

    I’ve had good results with a laptop running Audacity and a Samson CO1U USB microphone. Granted, it was a reading, so we could pass the mic back and forth.

    You might ask John Joseph Adams. He recorded a panel I was on at a Lunacon two years back, and it was clear enough my staff could transcribe it.
