Car with way more crap.

I was driving to work once and saw a car with a similar looking bunch of crap attached to the top.
I was like "What the hell is all that garbage and crap duct taped to the top of that car?"
Then I figured out it was the car taking photos for google street view.
I had to conclude that the camera rig was intentionally made to look like redneck crap just to be inconspicuous.

I suspect it's some crazy homebrew RF antenna, but no idea what signals he's picking up.

There were at least five antennas. With a substantial whip on the biggest one.

My favorite theory is that he is tracking animals which may or may not exist.




Also, I didn't know the plural of antenna was different for insects and radios until incredibly recently.
