    And it's about time for this one. Which do you prefer for announcing/describing new advancements in amateur radio?

    Brief web article (text with pictures) with a web link to more information that may be in the form of video, podcast, or just a longer more detailed article.

    I want to be able to decide within seconds whether or not the topic is of interest or value to me, then have the option of finding out more about it.

    Podcast or video is the least efficient way to do that, but may be suitable for more detail.

    Never have seen or used a podcast (I think).
    I delete most of the text msg that find my phone, mostly asking me to buy more minutes or ads for odd junk .
    I Hear and see some useful info on my Facebook and Yahoo goups connected to ham Radio. .

    No new advancements happening in amateur radio, So Neither and Both will be the same.

    I don't bother with pod casts and videos, for the most part. Why should I burn 30 minutes when I can look it up and read it in 1 minute?

    I like printer ads or seeing it live at a HamFest if it's a new product.
    I've wasted 30 minutes before watching a stupid podcast and still not finding out much about the product.
    And I sure as hell don't need any more text coming in on my phone. HI
    Does anybody remember a specification sheet nowadays
