Has anyone ever dried their own scallops before for conpoy?

Has anyone ever tried to make their own conpoy? Is there a special process involved? Can you make them from regular scallops or do they have to be a special kind of scallop? I imagine it's a similar drying process to proscuitto or something. Good conpoy is prohibitively expensive.
