I need to speak up

Apparently I need to speak up more because I got really cut off by the silence trunkation. I also wanted to make sure the link to the ham clock software got put in

I vote for "Push To Talk".

For future long format shows, I've included this simple "how to" video for Mumble users. It covers "Toggle Self Mute" and "Push To Talk" keybindings. We should really have some kind of reminder during these events to help with the "frantic keyboard noise" issues.

The video is CC-BY-SA 4.0. I've also included a shorter video in the description. They're both CC-BY-SA 4.0. I'll update both video descriptions with the license.
