I had seen the previous post so I skipped this one this morning. Then I went in and watched some of the videos. Really nice.
And they were still outside in Alberta in December.

Not being able to stand-up must annoying for most choir singers.

Haven't watched yet, but is the technology of the future basically 1978's Mr Microphone from Ronco?

IME a lot of things about it aren't optimal, but it's better than the alternative.

It reminds me a bit of how digital goggles are slowly taking over analog in FPV flying, but for a long time only analog UHF video transmitters were up to the task. I wonder if the pandemic spurs audio companies to produce similar low latency digital recording tools.

This would be a cool idea for HAM radio, except the FCC prohibits music on amateur frequencies unless incidental to retransmission of manned spacecraft transmissions. I guess you could do spoken word.

Regarding ham radio, there's a bit of a discussion here about what constitutes music.

My understanding is that the prohibition on 'music' in the amateur radio service is intended to prevent *broadcasting*, and as such it may be just fine for people to 'communicate' by singing harmony (if they're observing all the other rules about station identification &c.). I bet it hasn't been tested, though.
