    yes. It's a camera feed from a motorcycle to a helicopter to a satellite. Particularly in the high mountains the signal can brake up, and because its digital, when you lose a digital signal it tends to freeze or go black, rather than getting snowy like an analog signal.

    I don't know about it being that often but they always have a lot of signal problems. It has to do with the motorcycle-held cameras signal being transmitted to helicopters which relay the signal on to satellites. All in mountainous, wooded areas conjested with a lot of vehicles. A lot of stuff to block the signal.
