MOBILE STATIONS Broadcast Major EVENTS
HISTORY in the making is now brought into the homes of millions of American people through the use of mobile radio stations capable of broadcasting from the actual scene of any major event or catastrophe. Carrying broadcasting and receiving equipment, announcers and engineers, the mobile stations can rush to fires, flood areas, political and other events at a moment’s notice.
While one crew of engineers rushes to the scene another group hurriedly sets up high frequency receiving apparatus atop nearby buildings for picking up the signals from the portable or mobile station. Special telephone lines then carry the announcer’s voice to the key station where the broadcast is sent out to network stations throughout the country.
