[athen] Accessory mic for Telex FM units

ATHEN folks,

We'd like to enable our students who use Telex FM ALDs to hear questions
asked by students and other classroom interactions by providing a
hand-held microphone which can be aimed in the desired direction. The
mic would be plugged into the aux jack on the Telex TDR-4AA FM receiver
that receives the lecture.

I tried a generic microphone, but the level was too low. Though I could
put something together that will work, I wonder if Telex has an
accessory mic. I tried to find one on their web site, but was frustrated
by the lack of clear navigation--or maybe the info just isn't there.

So--does anyone have info on using a microphone with these older Telex
FM receivers? (The built-in mics are not directional enough and
introduce too much background noise.)
