I have been asked to join the Arbitron ratings panel-myself and my entire family actually. It would involve wearing a personal device meter that automatically collects and stores a silent signal that is part of TV, radio and cable broadcasts. At night, I would put the meter into a recharger and the recharger would send the info to the company. In exchnage for this, i would receive a small monthly stipend (they sent me via UPS $10 cash just for answeirng a VERY brief survey over the phone the other day) as would anyone else in my house who do it on a daily basis. i would also, I guess, be influencing TV and radio ratings. Does anyone do this? Or, has anyone done this? Opinions would be appreciated.
