    Cool video.

    But when I read the thread title, my first thought was, "I wait until the other guy is transmitting, then turn the volume up loud so I can hear it in the other room."

    I think this was one of the best "How to do POTA" videos I have seen. It was:

    1) Short
    2) To the point
    3) Good for a person that has never done portable or POTA/SOTA, and/or new Ham
    4) Encompassed all of the key points in 12 minutes with little or no distracting techno babble.
    5) Full of energy and enthusiasm

    When I first started POTA I looked at lots of videos and they were mostly too long and included way too much information that was not needed.

    BTW: See my QRZ page
    GO ARMY!!!!

    It is already in the UK, a few hundred parks across the entire country! From GM-0097 on the northernmost Shetland Islands to G-0347 on the Isles of Scilly on the south!!
