Been there... done that...

My kit bag, has the microphone and the 'long' cable I used when I still
had the time to record/publish our meetings.
Its available for use.

And regarding the wireless approach...

I tried that too... with an in-expensive wireless mic.
It didn't work, because the neighborhood is just too RF noisy.
... and I wasn't going to go out and buy an expensive setup;
so I just went back to the 'wired' approach.
