    You guys will give me hell about this one!!!
    And I think we're still entitled to opinion in this country but maybe not.
    I just have one question to ask first. With all the YouTube ham radio news and information and so-called videos online, who finds time to make an actual on the air contact??? Looking at their likes and subscribers, I guess a lot of people spend most of their day watching these YouTube videos instead of having QSOs and getting on air and using ham radio for communications, I don't know???? So how many hours do you hams spend watching these things every week??
    Looking at the number of subscribers and the length of these videos anybody can do the math and there's a whole lot of time being spent watching these things.

    Don't get me wrong, I watch some of the news and information videos too. But I don't get too wound up in them, I sure would rather be talking to somebody on the air. And practicing the art of ham radio, even with poor band conditions I still find plenty of people on the air to talk to each day that are very enjoyable.
    By the way I think one video was 35 or 40 minutes and the other one was even longer, I did not watch them.
    I just opened them up and saw how long they were, so I'm not wasting my time watching instead I'm answering a CQ on 40 right now! For real.

    Real grey area potential here. Sooner or later someone's going to test the ice and find it's very thin.

    Come on your not serious.... take it for what it is, two hams having a Qso and asking questions about what they do.
    As for time being spent on watching these... yep I do spend a little time some weeks but in all honesty if it wasn't for people like these guys I wouldn't get out portable and have contacts myself. Can only run portable and now due to the wx here (winter) I don't have the up and go but while browsing a few youtube vids it gets me off my backside and transmitting!
    It is what it is.

    Would be great if a ham who is proficient in solar science came on YouTube every so often with a translation of the current solar forecast.
    "After reading and watching 30 minutes of solar science BS, I can tell you that the bands will suck for the next two weeks with occasional openings on 20, 40 and 80 meters."

    Youtube pays royalties for play.

    If the ham 'interview' was a priori established with the intent of delivering it to a paying medium, for compensation, then this is a violation of Part 97.

    Read the law. Don't argue whether I am aware of it. Thanks.

    You're spot on Mr Chip! And, in the Orlando, FL area during the Riley Hollingsworth era, this was indeed brought to a head and...the hams lost!
