    This will be the 4th or 5th video I have done on or about an RFinder device. This Android DMR and phone device has been my daily carry for about 1.5-2 years now, switching between models, but all from RFinder. I like this device, I believe in it, and it works very well. Expect to see more videos on these devices in the future as new ones are released. This video talks about the newest K1 model.

    Hello Jason,

    I watched your video on the M1/K1 and am still confused as to what these devices are/do without doing further research.
    Aside from Amateur Radio and all things related, After over 25 years in broadcast, I thought that I may be able to help you out with your presentations.

    I think that it is very important to have Que Cards so that you stay on subject and have the data in front of you.
    Practice difficult words over several times and places.
    Always look at the camera when you are speaking to your audience, we are on the other side looking at you.
    Don't make faces; not even if your dog farts.
    Go over (Rehearse) the show and have others watch the rehearsal and listen to their comments.
    Good posture, good pronunciation.
    List resources for specifications and other things that technically oriented Amateurs may be interested in if you didn't announce them during your production.
    Watch your finished product with others so that you can get some input from viewers.

    Conclusion: I'm not going to go over lighting and audio filtering, your set-up seems to be quite adequate for what you are doing.
    I have no idea what those units are; radio, telephone; combination of the two or dual, single/dual band units. I am sorry, but this is the first
    time that I have seen anything on these units. I have watched some of your other programs. Take your time and do it to the best of your ability. None of us are perfect and we don't expect perfection.

    Jason, Please don't take this as a criticism. I think that you have a lot to offer the Amateur community and thank you for the time and effort that you have put into your productions.

    Best Regards,

    Thomas Davis - W6LDX

    Replies like this are why lots of people say QRZ is a waste of time. No good comments at all, only complaining. If you don't like the video, then move onto something else. No use crying like a 16-yr old high school girl about it.

    Thomas, your comments aren't bad. However, the reason I do the show the way that I do it is because it is more real and authentic. I specifically do not rehearse the show because I have a tagline of "Live From the Hamshack" - so it is put together exactly the way that I want it to be.

    Some people might not agree with this, and that is fine. There are lots of good shows out there on Ham Radio. People who do nothing except complain (not you), who post on here or other sites with nothing but negative comment - I suspect they are just negative people overall or maybe they see something happening here that they wish they had done, but never took the initiative. Either way, whatever the reason for all the negativity, I try my best to ignore it.

    This video is a build onto 4 or 5 other videos where I explain what these devices do and how they work. I even have one video on setting the device up from scratch. So this video itself wasn't meant to be an introduction to what the device does, it was a comparison between models for a device that I have already introduced.

    Jason (KC5HWB) and his videos have been a great service to the Amateur community. Through watching his videos or talking to him on the air I have learned some things that have helped me. His videos are not "pay per view", nor does he require a subscription for his service. If you dont like a program on TV you change the channel. If you dont like what you hear on the Air, Spin the large dial, but I would respectfully ask that you not make negative comments about a fellow Amateur that tries to make the Ham community a better place. Just say Thanks, contribute useful addition to the videos, or say nothing at all. Just a friendly suggestion...

    I apologize if I have made you feel the slightest bit intimidated or unhappy. Additionally, I never saw the other videos on these units and that is my fault; can't cover them all. I have seen some of your other videos and have enjoyed them. Keep up the good work and do what you do best. Have fun!
    Best Regards,
