We now have quite a few of these running including mine at the blog address at the foot of this post and another by Stephen Ames in Kentucky, US.

The broadcasts do of course of course rely on good weather in each area and also rely on the fact that we are at home and not at work, so for a lot of the time there will be no broadcasting. Most of us at work are limited to weekend broadcasts if the weather is OK at the moment. It looks good and works well though when we do broadcast and you can also use the live messaging system to communicate which is great for educational outreach and explaining what people are looking at.
