Greensboro, NC -- Dwha Hassan, a Guiflord County fifth grader asked the question, "We see news vans set up to air an on scene report. What kind of equipment is in the news van?".
2 Wants To Know didn't have to look far for the information. WFMY News 2's "Engineer Lee".
Lee starts with a quick tour of the Live Truck. It's basically a big van that gets it's power through a generator. A mast on top of the van is extended so the dish on the top can send out a microwave signal.
The picture and sound come from a camera and microphone that are hooked up to the van through a cable which sends the picture and sound signal.
Micro waves are like radio waves, but they are much smaller!
