    What is this white van with unusual antennas doing? Spotted in the City of London near St Pauls.

    It caught my attention as it had mirror film on the window, wasn't a shiny new vehicle, no identifying marks, a slightly bent VHF antenna up on the pole, other unusual antennas on the roof, and parked on yellow lines in an odd location.

    Purely guessing but I'd suggest it was an Outside Broadcast vehicle for a relatively small (i.e. poorly funded) TV or radio station.

    It's a radio outside broadcast van.

    TV OB trucks are either stuffing great 40-ton beasts that get bigger when you push the right button, or the little SIS satellite link vans with a four-foot dish on top.
