We streamed the entire symposium in Chicago, granted it was audio only, but
a lot of it depends on the hotels internet, this year BATC even warned that
they might not be able to live stream if the hotel connection wasn't good.
Last year they tried streaming the General Meeting, I caught the first
bits, it was done with an iPad which may not be the best choice, streaming
to the AMSAT Echolink reflector requires a couple of "backdoor" things to
avoid timeouts and interference form other stations as we do with the ARISS
contacts and I don't believe that bit of software is available for iPad.
Also the hotel in San Jose may not have had good internet. I like the idea
of live stream but I'm probably in the minority.
