I have twice encountered “latency” (didn’t know that’s what it’s called) and both times is was pretty local, and traced to that speaker having a truly terrible internet connection.

Slightly OT –
I just got off a Zoom call with one participant along the Space Coast, one in Queens, one outside SF and three of us in SoCal. We had about 3-second latency on the sound. Has anyone else experienced that, or was it just our hook-up.

This morning I did a Zoom presentation for a NMRA group out in Michigan and Indiana. Besides HS2020 I know there're smaller groups having regular Zoom meetings. It's a good way for local groups to bring in 'fresh blood' for a talk. Might be something for guys to consider. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to get a speaker from elsewhere in the country. I was asked to do something for a group out in the NW, but didn't know of such things as Zoom then.
