    Can I connect a portable radio's headphone jack to a camcorder's mic jack? I would like to be able to record my dauther's basketball games, using the broadcast of the game (on our local radio station) for the sound.

    Is it as simple as using a 1/8 to 1/8 mono audio cable?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Well, theoretically you should be able to. Just watch your levels as mic inputs are very sensitive and headphone outs can be pretty strong. Do some experimentation around the house. Just keep the headphone out volume pretty low and you should be safe.
