This is notable on two counts.  First, reception is remarkable.  Using the PL-600 with only its whip - it is if they are broadcasting from next door.  Second, the match being broadcast between West Ham and Bournemouth is West Ham's first league match in their new home - London (Olympic) Stadium.  There was much hand-wringing and disconcerting thought on whether the Olympic Stadium of 2012 would ever see secondary use of significance consequence.  In final bidding, West Ham became the only football team to show interest.

1626 Getting a rough copy from 11890. I had tuned here earlier but passed on because of the signal quality which is poorer than normal. Now that I'm paying attention I can tell it's match coverage.
