Re: Daft Question


Hello everyone,
 The operators on the Superbowl Channel operate from mobiles. They usually pick a GM or Chevrolet truck or wagon. These guys run all the power they can run which means more alternators (some even off of diesel locomotives) and huge batteries. These vehicles are usually moved by trailer and set up once they arrive at the contest site. Most of the beams are twice as long as the truck! They do put up signs at most events that warn of radiation. They do this to out talk everyone else. The one that talks over the rest to the one target (base) radio at the end of the day wins and we are talking briefcases full of cash!
