Well, I did some checking - and I don't know if this really fits into the catagory you're talking about -  but there's the WGBH bus. It's a 1970 MCI (model 7?), formerly of Greyhound's Trans-Rockie route. Converted to a mobile broadcast/recording unit in 1984. Originally used to record the BSO.

>From what I understand, it is currently held together with bailing wire, chewing gum, and crossed fingers. Not unexpectedly, as I'm sure this is all too familiar a case throughout all of radio.


btw, I asked about the digital broadcasting... from what I gathered, it *was* referencing the channel 44 broadcasts that someone on this list previously mentioned.
