    I can read faster than watching a video. What is the news, why watch a video? Orlando is already cancelled.

    Put it in writing.

    Reading is fundamental.
    Reading is hard.

    Hi Lee,

    True, the live Orlando event has been cancelled. But as the chairmen explained in the video, a virtual "HamCation Special Edition" is in the works. It sounded like a lot of effort is going in to it to make it a memorable event.

    The live video format allows outsiders to participate with questions or comments. That can't be done is an original printed version. And transcribing a video presentation is a major undertaking.

    A simple 3 sentence post would be easier to read. You can have descriptive nouns and adverbs like the word currently included in the post.It's not hard to read and there are those without video enabled.
    You ought to be shaking your head at the lack of basic education preventing reading and writing and instead, relying on video.

    This is playing out the same way for fairs here in CA. To date, fairs in February, May and June have cancelled. Whether all fairs will again be cancelled this year remains to be seen... You know they are ramping up the Covid 19 v.2 saying it is more deadly than the common cold...soooo...

    That's too easy, and text doesn't get Youtube viewership or make money.

    Someone stated there was not date on the U tube video interview
    seems like the first few lines of text had this
    "Tim Duffy, K3LR was live on Facebook and YouTube on 12/22/2020"

    By the way chalk me down for preferring text versus videos
    A short paragraph or 3 sentences versus 10 to 20 minute long videos often would be better
    in my opinion - just ,my two cents worth :)

    I think they can't get insurance coverage to cover the suits brought on by someone who died after attending.
