A new YouTube Video!!! St. Louis Arch NPOTA Activation

It’s been a while since there were one of these!

Also, Kyle, N0KTK was the ringleader of this activation. He’s got a blog here, also did a video of this activation here:

And he’s got more where that came from.

I also ditched my copy of Vegas because it would crash every bunch of edits, and wouldn’t save right, and it literally made me lose hair. I miss the workflow, but because of it’s price point and popularity, I’m going with Adobe Premiere. I did this using the 7 day trial.

I really love making videos, but doing this one took me exactly 7 hours, 43 minutes, and 10 seconds. From less than 30 minutes of video, and only 4 minutes of a finished product. Editing is hard. But your enjoyment makes it worth it!


Over the past month I’ve learned a lot. I made a website (learning about domain name registration, hosting, WordPress, PHP, analytics tracking, blah blah blah), and I rebranded my YouTube with new photos and banners, and I created a new Google+ page to rename the channel to “N0SSC” to the like of W2AEW and K7AGE.

I did all this because I wanted to change my YouTube URL from




It took 6 days of emailing back and forth between YouTube partner support and I, and basically starting a small business to get it. I don’t know why I put so much work into it, but it feels good. Now instead of wondering who that “sterwing” guy was or that my old URL was something like /SterlingCoffeyN0SSC, all you need is N0SSC.

Feels good man. I may be blowing the significance of this out of proportion but still. Feels good.

Now I should actually go make videos.

Also this is my website, welcome. It’s not finished yet. 🙂

Also, over the past month, I got engaged to no less than the best girlfriend, now fiance. I’m the happiest person in the world right now.
