Cruising through the skies at the amazing speed of over 200MPH, it won’t take long for Annie and Joe to cross the country. Even so, there’s plenty of hiding places for the spies once they reach their destination. Isn’t there some way for our friends to call for help? Are they cut off from communication way up in the sky?
Powerful Radio transmitters relay the signal, with repeater stations to boost the message traffic. Though the repeated messages are annoying to listen to, it was a common way to ensure accurate communications in early 2-way radio transmission, even if grossly over done.
Ground crews are alerted to watch for the spies, and despite the great speed, the airplane is pretty quiet. After the messages have been sent, Annie notices details that could mean trouble. Leaping lizards, it sounds like the whole Navy has been called on to pursue the spies.
