Best Way For Busy Mama to Record 2017 Convention - Preferably FM Recorder?

Does anyone have a favorite way to record the convention/assemblies? I have little ones so I frequently have to leave my seat. My first preference is to be able to record using the FM frequency, but when my father-in-law tried that a few years back all he recorded was static.  All the research that I have found are lots of reviews for older/outdated products.  Hoping someone has a current device that works for them and would be willing to share any advice. Second preference is a sound recorder that would pick up the speaker without a lot of background noises.  I do occasionally use various sound recorders on my android phone, however I use it for taking notes and sending an occasional SOS to daddy while in the back.

First,  welcome to the forum.  It's kind of a collection of goof balls but it is a good spot to be...

 

I have been recording conventions for years,  I have 2 Sansa units that receive FM radio and they do it rather well. Little to no static and no background noise at all.

I wear the ear buds when I record, the wire for those acts as the antenna for the FM band and also it helps me to get more out of the sessions because little noise don't distract me. Plus, by wearing the earbuds I can tell if I'm getting some static and I can just move the wire around a little bit and eliminate the noise..

One of the units is a Sansa Fuze, the other Sansa I don't recall the model name. Whatever you get, check and make sure it will record FM. A lot of different devices will receive FM but not be able to record.

Same here. I use a Sansa Clip but I think that model has been discontinued. Since the ear bud wires are the antenna, I have to stay in my seat and not move around to ensure good reception. I try to sit as close to the FM transmitter as possible to ensure I get good reception but I still get a little static occasionally.
