Thanks to the 196 people who completed our equipment survey. It was a general interest survey on the number of radios in use and the brands that we’re being used and purchased. We also asked about antennas.
The summary results are shown below. We found it interesting that there was an average of nearly eight radios owned with roughly half that number active over a month’s time. The average number of antennas came it at just about the same number of radios. Radio purchases came in at just over three in the last four years.
On the brands owned and purchased, we tallied the brands shared that totalled more than five. It’s a good selection. There were a number of boat anchors included in the results.
We learned a bit about how to organize a survey. And how not to ask some questions that resulted in data that was challenging to summarize. We’ve also set one data point for April 2015 that we can use in any follow-up survey’s over the next few years.
Thanks again for your contribution to providing this information.
