    TheBrothersWISP – The Guys Go To WISPAmerica 2016

    Spoiler alert, Mike has some new recording equipment, so let’s see what he does with it.

The show just started a week ago and we already have 3/5ths of the views of the new videos. We interviewed Baicells, Mimosa, VISP, Trango, IgniteNet and TowerOne.
