  • Be careful, Google will ban your ad account if you even indirectly encourage visitors to click on ads, and other networks may have similar policies.  There are also accounts that have been banned because well-intentioned people purposely clicked on ads a lot.

  • Sorry Chris... The free high speed internet at most hotels is more low speed, and I didn't bring the good microphone.

    Someday, I hope to broadcast from the studio in the sUAS News Building in Century City ;-) 


  • Gary does sUAS news get more ad revenue when people click on the ADs?

    If so I'll turn off my AD blocking stuff when I'm on the sUAS site & make sure to click on the AD & follow those links.

  • I have the same problem as Chris--The low audio quality of sUAS News is too tiring to listen to.  I thought it was an issue with, but if it is on the production side then I wish you luck in scrounging up some better equipment.

  • Done and done. Thank you for the link to add comment, Gary.

    Yeah its an issue but rather get the message out than not especially as there is a deadline for comment to the FAA on this one.

    Whenever Patrick is on the road it's dodgy and I live in a round hut in Africa so we do the best we can with what we have. Maybe one day somebody will pay us lots of money so we can afford better connections and gear ;-)

    Some important stuff was said, if you are considering operating commercially in the USA and would like regs to start moving forward you might want to comment on the petition.!documentDetail;D=FAA-2012-0897-0002

    Folks you have until Feb 4th to get yourselves heard.

  • Interesting interviews.

    I listened to the whole podcast even though audio quality tested my patience.

    The really audio needs to be improved. I noticed this on the video podcasts too.

    It reminds me of my first web cam from back in the late 1990's.
