It's the IHSH-101BB.  The 20 has the size tag on the side of the label inside the collar.  The 101BB has Permex snaps as well.

Can anyone advise us on a microphone to use for Zoom calls? We haev a small conference room set up in one of our rooms at the office for Zoom calls with customers/clients/IHJP etc etc. Often they involve multiple people sitting around a table, so I have been trying to find a good USB-C microphone we can put on the table that will pick up 360 audio and work with zoom, but also other apps for eg Slack, Google Meets, Facetime etc etc. Needs to be Moc OS compatible

Any help would be great, we have tried and failed several times already!

@Alex a critical thing with any telecon room is having a very low reverberation time I.e avoiding sound bouncing around the room and muddying everything up. I do acoustics for a living so happy to have a look for you and make some recommendations. Heck if it needs a site visit I’ll just have to come down

I have the Blue Yeti mic. It's pretty great. I admit that I haven't had to use it to record multiple people around the mic, but it has 4 sound source options for that very purpose.  Check it out:

In my experience, you can do a type III with similar chest measurements to your preferred shirt size and get a hoodie under it without looking stuffed. Otherwise I look for type III’s a little smaller than shirt size for wearing over just one layer.

Where I live having type III’s in two sizes, (one for summer, one for autumn/spring), is easily justifiable.

I don't have that luxury right now of having 4 seasons  :'( :'( neither do I have my UHF with me to test. I do pair it with the waffle henley and it's an okay fit. just wondering if it's too much to go a size up in the type 3 and pair with hoodies or shirt while being able to still wear it just over a tee if needed.

I have size 38 and size 40 type IIIs, and I wear all of them layered or with just a tee. Layering the 38 can feel a little tight but is okay. The 40 may look a little baggier with just a tee, but I’ve never thought it looks bad. If you want movement and comfort, I’d say a size up won’t kill ya

Has anyone ever put hot pepper sauce in their birdseed to deter squirrels before? I don't mind feeding the squirrels too, but they are bullies and chase the birds away. They are really greedy and a pain in the ass. I feel kind of bad harming them and I definitely don't want to hurt the birds. They have a tough enough life as it is, out in the cold.

The birds should be fine. A colleague worked on something in this area and I believe that birds are insensitive to capsaicin so don’t get the hot response. The smell/taste should deter the squirrels before they eat too much, so I guess they’ll be fine (just a bit hungry).

@Filthy I don’t think there is a solution to Birds vs. Squirrels

Thanks guys. There are solutions to squirrels but I feel guilty about killing them. (Rat traps and guns)

Hot pepper does not permanently harm the squirrels, but I’ve found it only temporarily deters them so I generally shy away from using it. If they’re desperate enough, they’ll eat it anyway and put up with the sting. Fun fact: bird food manufacturers have to double the amount of hot pepper in the bird seed every couple years because squirrels quickly evolve to be able to resist the spice.

The best solution I’ve found is to use the ‘squirrel defender’ feeder. The one downside is that the no-mess food doesn’t cycle through it well. You could probably also use a ‘dinner bell’ feeder but they might figure that out eventually.

I just buy spicy bird/woodpecker food. Squirrels leave it alone. Amazon

I might start catching the squirrels and relocate them or something.
