In order to decrease loading time I've thumbnailed the photos.
Click on a photo to see it in it's original size or some semblance thereof.

The first picture is one of me standing on Sure Shot truck #10.
It was taken at Mosaic Park, located in Kobe, Japan.
In the background is the Port of Kobe Tower.
It was taken during the 2002 FIFA World Cup competitions.

The first two pictures of Sure Shot's new C-Band Truck taken in Columbus on 1/9/99
Andy, who operates one of Mobile Uplinks Ku-Band trucks, took them with his digital camera.
This was the first job for the new truck.  Can you tell we were a little cold?
