Default Hunting new video/TX/RX equipment

I am very curious to learn what equipment NASCAR uses for their onboard cameras. Considering the speed, nearby objects, and the massive EMF that is generated by the engines... this equipment would work great in a plane. I searched with several different criteria, but wasn't able to find the exact equipment used. I did find other interesting products... http://www.jonescam.tv/ Has anyone tried these products... If so, what did you think?

His transmitter is Part 15 licensed which means it puts out about 1mw of power output. Most folks are running at least 100mw to get good results.

All I could think was "wow they have a lot of channels!"

One web site "Fox network" said they are having some problems with the new digital equipment after the FCC sold the channels they were using, and another site mentioned 3.5GHz.

I’m not sure how good they would do on an airplane anyway, one car was nice enough to do a snap roll for me and the video broke up pretty bad.
