2010 Dayton Hamvention D-STAR Forum Video
- Almost 600 people have watched the video of the D-STAR Forum at the 2010 Dayton Hamvention® since I put it up on the ARVN web site last month. That's the whole forum, not a short preview! (It's still there, if you haven't seen it. There's a link at the top-right of the home page).
- By comparison, the 2008 and 2009 D-STAR forums, available only on DVD, have each sold about 100 copies (which is adequate, but not stellar, from my perspective as producer). The DVDs are $15/ea.
- The viewer "attention" graph provided by to the channel owner by YouTube shows attention for the video slightly "worse than average" compared to other videos of this length (90 minutes). That measures how many viewers keep watching, replay segments, or "tune out," and the graph shows a running average throughout the video. Attention takes a big jump up in the last quarter of the video when G4ULF describes how he builds D-STAR repeaters out of non-ICOM equipment (his favorite: Tate , a name not too familiar with US hams).
- 65% viewers are between 45
and 65 years old. 5% is female. You can watch without logging into
YouTube, and I'm assuming those stats are generated by people who have
logged in. Since most people are watching on my web page, not directly
on YouTube, I'll assume that most viewers are not logged in. But
those stats align pretty well with those for my other ham-radio-related
videos that are mostly viewed on YouTube. (And come to think of it, with
all the stories about how much Google tracks us and knows about us,
maybe they do know our age and gender without logging in.)
- 77% of viewers are in the US. 11% in Germany, 11% in Japan.
