And while we're stuck on cellular, we kindly request that you please refrain from bogging down the signal.

I'm not rich by any means but I feel free entertainment vs paying $5 for entertainment is the same thing. Not sure I'll watch most events but I'll give them money anyways. Yes I know it adds up to more than $5. I still remember when you couldn't watch any disc golf. Easy decision for me

I have a $300ish bag and $4-500ish in discs in it but most of that was paid for with funny money from league nights and tourneys hosted by The Nati shop at Mt Airy.

Well more like $350-400 atm. But I've had more in it at times.

If I was a cell phonian, couldn't I ask you to stop slowing down my phone performance with your disc golf coverage.

Could file a complaint to the FCC. Might open pandora's box of licensing.

Using cellular for the final link or next-to-final link is not great, for all of the reasons above.

The alternatives cost a lot of money whether to lease one-shot equipment for the event, like a telco cell tower on wheels, or to put in infrastructure like a hard-wired broadband connection very close to the venue. Until the money's there for these. . . oof.

What did we ever do before cell phones? If we could only remember that archaic technology that Telsa invented, maybe it could solve our problems.
