    Why ruined? Will the average viewer know the difference? We STILL get 'press' and that's worth a lot!

    BTW, this is at least the third thread on this commercial...

    Quite true the average person has no clue what amateur radio is. Often they see an amateur putting up an antenna and they will ask if you're one them thar CBer's. They know what CB is at least there's a lot more about that service then ours.
    If the general public gets the idea they can use CB to talk to Mongolia they may just do that. I doubt the CB crowded is even going to mention amateur radio to them but will, instead, direct them on how to buy a linear, put up a six element beam, proper use of an echo mic, roger beep functions and how to open up their radio for them extrie channels.
    If this makes folks curious then they may just find out about amateur radio mostly by accident.
    BTW there are other posts on this comercial? Must have missed em.
    Have fun

    Well I don't think it would have been too difficult for them to do a little research and get it right. I bet they probably have a few hams working with the company somewhere. It's just a cheesy commercial all the way around.

    I don't watch commercials, so I probably will never see it.

    That is why remote controls have the ability to change channels, NO BS Commercials.
