Re: [IP] Problems wearing pump



Bud,

I learned about this for my pump by experiencing the same trouble with a
lapel microphone.  If I wear either one too far forward, then they will fall
off.  So I wear the pump back on my hip so that when I sit down , my leg
does not push the bottom of the pump.  This elleviates this problem for me
completely!  At least I learned with a lapel mike and didn't have to test
the pump by letting it hit the floor.  (Dropping the mike was just
hilariously funny!  I won't take up space with the story--if you want to
hear it--e-ail me privately!)
