Title: Has anyone ever been an SCA pirate?
Post by: William Hassig on September 30, 2013, 0051 UTC
Has anybody ever put an FM transmitter in their car, put their recorded program onto an FM subcarrier of either 67 or 92 kHz, put the subcarrier into the FM transmitter, parked outside of a place of business such as a fast food place and heard their program on the loudspeakers in the place of business? I had thought of doing that but never got around to doing it. Now of course it's too late because background music has gone to satellite, cable and internet delivery.

Interesting idea.

Reminds me of a time when a buddy and I sat outside a restaurant and was yapping on the CB for another 10 minutes telling dirty jokes before going in. When we went in, we got applause and chuckles. Seems we came over the restaurant's radio/PA system and everybody heard everything! :o :-[ ;D

Peace!

@cmradio, years ago I went to see a movie Back when movie sound was still analog optical and somebody driving past said "breaker one nine etc" and we all laughed because it was more interesting than the movie.

Back in 2004, in Alabama, the place I worked issued us those GRMS (i think..) band handhelds. There were a few fast food places that used similar models and the fun I had with them. One of them, a hardees, got so familiar with my voice that the one time I actually got desperate enough to eat there I got a bunch of odd looks from the girl in drive thru window.

Back in the early 90's, I had a really dirty linear on my 2950, and we shut down the drive thru at the local McD's when we keyed up.
