Super Bowl XLVI Monitoring Post

Here's a look at my hotel room monitoring command post near Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. I'm also monitoring from inside the secured areas of the stadium where I am working.

Radios include the GRE PSR-500 and PSR-600, PRO-96, Uniden 396XT and the Optocom black-box receiver. And additional PSR-600 and 396XT are working over in the office at the stadium. The PSR-600 and Optocom are set up to log frequencies while I am away from the hotel.
