If you are offering to help to do PR then please do so. I don't think any of
the _volunteers_ today profess to be experts in that field.

Of course we'd love to have amateur radio stated everywhere. That is my
prime objective after making a successful contact. It was mentioned in the
BBC clip, but only once. We welcome help from those who are able to make
this work better.
