You will find some extra information and pictures if you continue below, but you'll also find a lot of dead video links. Someday we'll get around to fixing all of this.


Drive-Thru Shenanigans Once again, the PLA manages to annoy both employees and customers of fast food joints by adding new signs to the drive-thru menu boards. The results are a little like our Happy Birthday video except this time we allow the customers to have the freedom of choosing their own song for a free meal. And if they can't sing, they can always tell a dumb joke instead! This time the video runs a little over 10 minutes and includes such hits as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Happy Birthday and Let It Snow. (c) 2003

Taco Bell Takeover After weeks of messing with the frequencies of a nearby Taco Bell, we decide to film ourselves messing with ourselves. Just so we could witness the employees reactions to the prank. RBCP and a neighbor of his drove to Taco Bell to place an order while RijilV and Is0tek stayed behind to mess with their order.

Prank Calls by RBCP This is an old video from 1996 of RedBoxChiliPepper making a few prank calls. Some of the prank calls you've heard before because they were on the original PLA prank call CDs. You'll hear RBCP try and put a new roof on Mildred's house, a prank call to the legendary OCI phone company and a prank to El Jefe. So also get to see a little old-school diverting and watch as RBCP refers to his massive list of stolen Mastercard numbers to make free calls. (c) 2003

Happy Birthday! The PLA TV Crew decided to help out a local Hardees fast food joint with a little promotional advertising. After making a sign reading, "Sing Happy Birthday to the drive-thru girl for a free meal!", EvilCal and RBCP sit across the parking lot with a scanner tuned to Hardees frequency and videotape the results.

Soda Cup: RBCP & EvilCal get some magnets and use them to stick a soda cup on top of RBCP's car. This causes the cup to stay in place no matter how fast they go.

    Dear Brad,

    I am a viewer of your video: PLATV: How To Hijack Fast Food Drive-Thru Frequencies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyLrus1yKvI). It was really funny, and seemed like you knew what you were doing, so I decided to try it. In your video, you basically did a tutorial of how to insert a 6.5536 mhz crystal into a Realistic TRC-207 CB Radio. I purchased both the radio and the crystal. I had an issue installing the crystal, which is why I am messaging you.

    Once I unpackaged both the 6.5536 crystal and the Radio, I immediately went back to your video to watch how you installed it, because I similarly used the same exact model radio. I watched how you unscrewed the screws, and was paying very attentive detail. The first thing I noticed was this: When you unscrewed and took apart the radio, the crystal, located in the spot where you said it should have been plugged in, was missing. Here is a link to a picture of a screenshot from your video of you for the first time opening up the radio: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/sportzfanatic4/NoCrystalinVideo.jpg
    I was curious as to why the original crystal was not connected to the radio, unlike you said. I continued to watch, and then noticed an obvious video cut (just from editing the video, i understood why), but then the original crystal appeared in its place. I was wondering, “Why could that be”? I’m just curious, I am certainly not accusing you of making a non ligitament video or anything. Here is the screen-shot in your video of how it appeared to be in place: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/sportzfanatic4/Videos_Location_of_Crystal.jpg
    Here is a screen shot showing you inserting the new crystal into a “socket”: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/sportzfanatic4/wherevideofitcrystal.jpg

    As took the back off my radio, I looked at once to the place where you had installed this crystal, and I was surprised to find out that there was no original crystal already connected. Here is a picture I took of my radio, where the original crystal should have been: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/sportzfanatic4/MyRadio.jpg Now a little skeptical, I peered around for the “socket”, like you described, and I found no obvious socket or port in which the wires on the end of a crystal could be fit into. There was, however, a gap between the circuit board and a strip of circuit board on the grey, outside wall of the radio, which had balls with pointy tips that stuck out on them. (mini boobies haha). I managed to wedge my crystal in between this gap, and it seemed to fit, however, I did not seem as though the wires underneath the crystal had made any type of connection. Here is another picture I took of where I fit the crystal: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/sportzfanatic4/whereifitcrystal.jpg

    You also said in the video that the two CB Radios would no longer be compatible with each other once modified. Well I bought 2 crystals and 2 radios, and after installing them both, they still seemed to work, decently… So I figured they were never modified correctly anyways.

    I put the radio back together, and went to McDonald’s, and sat 10-20 ft away from the worker as she gave orders, trying to tap into the frequency. I cycled every single channel multiple times and never got any feedback.

    I would really really really appreciate any help you can offer me. I invested about $40 into the crystals and radios, and I really need them to work!!

    I have no doubt your video is legit, and all I need is help with the installation, this is not hate mail!

    Thank You!!
