    To address some overall statements and questions, I will respond with the following:

    This video was posted in the News section of QRZ. It was never advertised or intended to be a "teaching" video. Not all videos are teaching videos, though many are. Having fun with Amateur Radio should be perfectly acceptable. I guess it offends some people, but if you are interested in teaching new Hams about the hobby, then having fun is just one aspect of what we do.

    My jealous and disappointed comment was a reply to another trolling comment, which is what truly "opened the door" The original post that got muted/deleted was BEFORE my post. Please read the timeline.

    Please do! Make a video of your activation.
    (Just make sure you check the white balance on your video camera/recorder. :rolleyes: )

    Since there is a "Videos and Podcasts" area, would it make more
    sense to post them there instead of the "Amateur Radio News"?

    That would make it easy to go back and look for videos posted,
    at least for me. ;)

    The "Amateur Radio News" article decisions are made by the site ownership. The top management decides what remains in this forum vs. being moved to other forums. It's not a decision I'm empowered to make or comment on

    One better - what not go 'maritime mobile' on the Discovery?

    bet if you told them it would be on UTOOB, they would be happy for free advertising...

    You've got a boat Jason ? Hmmm.. thanks for the videos.
    Lately theres been a Bombardment of monetized YouTube videos of just useless content posted on QrZ by a particular individual or 2 on here. and I think it is raking the nerves of many people who use QRZ. Now, so they have lashed out at you for no reason, who has been doing this longer then most of these people. keep doing that what you do brother.

    ...Just spam the "news" feed here with every single thing you do, everyday! Look everyone... here is the 10,000th POTA video!

    Honestly, get on the air and enjoy the hobby. We get it, Ham Radio is FUN! Young hams don't need endless hours in front of their phones and PC's to understand how this all works, after all, everyone eventually has to study for the test. A few videos won't hurt anyone of course. But nowadays, there are thousands of them.

    FWIW, I get the enjoyment of saving money for a purchase, then telling other hams on the forums about my personal experience. Look at the Wolf River Coil comments. Someone already did the video FOR ME.

    If you want fame and attention, use TikTok or Reddit instead. In fact, I bet there isn't much POTA stuff on the TikTok feeds... there's your chance! You can thank me with sponsor money later. :cool:

    Just Enjoy
