This was my very first video which I shot in August of 2014. It was made with the video camera on my Android phone and was taken straight through with no editing. I did have to do 2 or 3 retakes to re-do a couple of parts I wasn’t happy with. But overall, for what it was, I thought it was a good video.
I made the video because I had been selling this radio on my website at Grapevine Amateur Radio since late 2013, and many of the calls I received were asking the same questions about programming. I decided to make this video and answer the most comment questions. The response to the video were very positive, so I decided I wanted to make more videos about more radios, but I wasn’t sure how exactly to make that happen. It took a few months, but by May of 2015 I had a plan in place and started making some more videos. They were rough at first, but I was soon able to improve the quality with better cameras, lighting and microphones.
So give this video a look and see how it all started.
