    Join me to the Houston Hamfest 2023. I explore the convention floor and tailgating areas. I talk to many different clubs in the area and hangout with a bunch of friends.

    Tons of different connectors, for the hobby a paradise. And many introductions of different groups with their kind of HAM-Radio. Especially the space communications group is on to go forward. The whole video is a nice compilation.

    I wish I had known about this BEFORE it happened. Can I get on a list or something to be notified next time it happens?

    Those videos like yours are really important, because they are much nearer to the operators than a specialist magazine. Those magazines are mostly totally led by ones head, not ones heart.

    To that magazines give much information about things, which are not important. For example to put the latest high quality machine to the measurement place, just for to check if its a bit better than the last one. And simple comparisons of devices are to banal for them. So that authors in the end dont mind the readers or needs of operators.

    The videos of operators are often more on the point, what there is need to know about this or that latest info in HAM-Radio. And direct interviews with exhibitors or producers are always close to the source and much more reliable.

    Well I liked the video, I seen a few items that I could of bought in the Ham Fest. A little far away for me to go since I live in CA. i just love to talk to the ham community, exchanging ideas and asking for advice, I would probably talk more than shop LOL, over the years I’ve gone to few ham fests, and I enjoyed every one of them.

    Thank you, i need to know this. The analytics is telling me to drop the interviews and clubs and my fans. HOWEVER, i feel they bring more a personal side to my videos PLUS the bring more energy to the videos then the vendor interviews.

    The analytics are not always true, because the classical Internet is a highspeed bitch. To have clicks and likes, dont says anything about success. Mostly the Internet is for to get a bigger degree of fame. Especially internet stores have a big clickrate. But only a selling value of around 2.5 % or lesser of that.

    Thats what your analytics maybe says too, I think. Never await to have the trust of big platforms. You are at one, where you have to show what you are able to do. And you are not a reseller more a reporter, so the trust of the audience will come much, much later. And dont think that nobody got you in mind after you got thousands of clicks. So you cant see directly the response by your videos, because you give information to the audience. There is more feedback for you needed, when you want to go this way. And then you can decide what is to change by yourself or not.

    And at the moment you got more than 900 clicks here and just 10 comments.
