Clear Channel, which holds a street-level advertising contract with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), and plans to extend its new screen network throughout the island's subway system.

Sony Active Antenna: TECSUN PL-660 SW BANDSCAN JULY 17 2012 pt. I w SONY ACTIVE ANTENNA HOLLY KOA CAMPGROUND
I ran an auto band scan on my TECSUN PL-660 while camping at the Holly MI KOA. This video documents the results of that scan (see part II as well) Impressed with my 660 but I doubt I'll ever stay at a KOA campground again. The place appeared to be poorly maintained. Almost every aspect gave me the impression that the management/owner just don't give a 1234 anymore. My 6 year old son loved the tractor rides though!Video Rating: 5 / 5
