Charles Smith on YouTube (in response to the discussion of hearing assist systems):
On Hearing Assist, we’ve been using this system since 2008. We saved a bit of money by buying six analog receivers. Most of these systems work in the 72-76 MHz frequency range. On this one, the tuning wheel is inside the battery compartment and has to be adjusted with an “eyeglass-sized” screwdriver. I have to re-tune them slightly during the year. The main thing I’ve seen with them is they don’t work well if you are sitting right below a fluorescent light ballast:

Tom Willis on YouTube (in response to my rant on why we should use tech):
On your first segment concerning the tools you use. I completely agree. If you think tech is bad for spreading the Gospel then throw away your Bible and go back to the Greek writings. Good info on the CCLI. I was not even aware of CCA. Good show, thank you
