Re: whats with the 7 second delay ???
The dish is 7 seconds or more because it takes that long to beam the signal from the game to the satilite in the sky back to recievers.
XM radio is the same thing. Listen to WLW on your car and then turn on the XM. You will here the same thing you just heard.
A simple radio signal from a game to your radio is delayed, but not noticed by the naked ear.
Ohio University bounces their signal to a satilite before it ever hits the radio station. It is delayed while you actually watch the game live in person. That creates a real problem.
Sports talk shows are delayed 7 seconds for the reason they can cut you off if something is said that should not be aired.
I know this to be fact because I worked in radio for over 10 years from 92 to about 5 years ago when I switched jobs to become a High School AD.
