Default 10s delay on Gt. North Run

I think this is a bit too much to be accounted for by digital
coding
delays etc.


It could be a sign of the times. A big public event broadcast live
is a
target for terrorists; a 10 second delay would allow the
broadcasters to
step in and stop the broadcast of certain incidents. e.g. Bomb on
finish
line, screen filled with flying body parts.




More likely multiple sat links on site then satlink back to BH plus
dsitribution......
