SINPO=34343

001- OM IDs CELL, Cell Phone Radio, and introduces General Manager, "General Telephone. "
001- General Telephone answers question "why are you sharing phone calls?" Well, because they at the phone company tape many calls for their friends and family. And you can't get non-cellular radios at Radio Shack anymore. "Now back to Sprint Contel..."
002- Recording of two OMs chatting.
002- OM IDs CELL, Cell Phone Radio.
003- More phone chatting.
All reception from this location, radio and antenna.
