(Content of audio from Hammobile has been Edited for security reasons
and may or may not be representative of actual transmissions coming
from within the Hammobile.
The possibility of the transmissions being authentic
and originating from the Hammobile are directly related
to the imagination of the listener and his ability
to decipher the overmodulated rectangle lightwaves emiting from the 2 meter antenna on top and to triangulate on the signal source using extrapolation software required to demodulate the middle sidebands of the DC signal!
In other words, turn your sound up!)
