    Tonight I get the privilege of speaking to John Amodeo and other staffers from the popular TV show 'Last Man Standing' starring Tim Allen as KA0XTT. To commemorate the last season of Last Man Standing, I'm honored to have been invited to operate as one of the Special Event Stations later this month. Tonight we will talk about details of that event.

    Of course you got to spend time at the station - you're a privileged "celebrity" average amateur would never get invited.

    An open invitation to the LMS event would be great but I think that might be more people than the crew could handle. I heard they previously had some bad actors that caused issues opening the studio more publicly.

    I think it is nice that they are reaching out to people who put an effort into growing the hobby through their outreach efforts on many platforms. A lot of these ham radio creators spend a lot of their time teaching and sharing making the hobby more accessible.

    I appreciate that they have a station and wish they had featured it more on the show to promote the hobby. I just find it kind of ironic in today's political and social atmosphere with people complaining of equality and "white privilege" that one had to essentially be of privileged "celebrity' status to even get a glimpse of the station in person or be a member of their club.

    It's private property, they can grant access to whomever they please. However, there's a clear path to you getting access here. Start a Youtube channel, grow your viewership, and you too could get to play on someone else's station. :)

    As for using it to promote the hobby more, the show isn't about amateur radio. They've already gone over and above the sort of "promotion" the hobby gets in most productions.

    Everyone get's their 15 minutes they say but I think the Romans said it best that when god comes for us men will go mad.

    There's "privilege" in every aspect of life. I don't move in those circles either but it doesn't bother me in the least. I know where my lane is and I stay in it.

    If all this bugs you that much do what I do - don't watch "youtubers". They have bugger-all to say that interests me (plus many of them are quite excruciating to listen to) so I don't bother.

    I also don't know what this "last man standing" stuff is all about and I really don't care.

    i read that as desperation....however YMMV ;)

    TEACHING....Seriously ??? o_O .....IMO the only thing the "creator" is sharing is his YT earnings with his bank-manager :rolleyes: ....again YMMV.

    Have you not seen the multitude of technician exam and general exam prep videos from multiple YouTube creators?

    Also, I think you're seriously overestimating YT earnings for ham radio operators. The idea that YT earnings are going to justify the kind of banking relationship that puts someone in front of a banking manager is laughable. And even if YT creators were making money from videos, how is that different from all the people who make exam test prep books, paid apps and websites, etc.? It's just a new delivery platform. Anything that grows the hobby in a positive way should be embraced. Otherwise, you're creating an exclusive mentality that closes off the hobby to newcomers.

    You have to meet the new generation where they spend their time. For various generations that can be forums, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, TikTok, etc. I don't get the venom towards YTers.
