There's loads of choice in the handheld portable recording market these days. Zoom make good kit, I use the Boss Micro, and Tascam 4-track cassette tape recording kit is available on e-bay for cheap money. An old cassette recorder with a condenser mic will do the job.

In a worst case scenario, you can even record on most mobile phones - it'll sound pretty rough but it might be good enough to tell you what you want to fix.

I just bought a Zoom H2 for I think it was $139. Records in stereo and it's the size of a cell phone. Youc an't go wrong fro the price.

Does anyone in the group have a laptop?
And a mic?
And a (free) copy of Audacity

Beg, borrow and download is about as cheap as it gets.
