Would you guys be interested in meeting in person tomorrow? It would
be nice to share knowledge and figure things out face to face.

i wasn't there during her test but becky reports that the transmitter she used (the fail-safe one operating within the .1 watt limit) reached across the park.  if so, you can have different "stations" by having a transmitter for each activity at a different frequency.

becky, are you at the park tonight?

I didn't realize radios were allowed because they have speakers, but
that's great! You're right it's a much better solution. I think
android phones do have an FM receiver as well anyways. So we just need
to tell everyone to bring radios?

How do I get the film audio to the group broadcasting the radio? We
can do different stations for different groups in theory, right?

I have to agree. As a device for audio its totally overkill and not
suited for the types of audio needed in the environment we are working
with, not to mention the difficulties with scaling and handling
mute/unmute coordination, getting everyone on the call and suffering
through all the people dropping in and out. It seems an unweildy stretch
for the tech. Everyone chews through minutes and then needs to charge
their cell phone. A GA that lasts from 7pm until 2am is not unheard of,
5 hours on a cell phone does not seem like a fun solution, and I can't
imagine watching an entire movie with a cell phone next to my head
(although the heat might be nice)
