Richard Schneider, our fearless leader, once again embarks on an exciting journey this weekend…a journey along most of the historic Lincoln Highway. Richard, and his much too patient wife Noel, will be traveling from San Rafael, CA to Moline, IL in his 1969 Mercedes 280SL.

They will be stopping in cities along the way to test out the reception of some of our over-the-air technology and report the findings. Not only will we be posting videos, but Richard will occasionally live streaming the race and their many adventures, so who knows what kind of gems you might witness.

“I look forward to the Great Race each year. The opportunity to be around the best cars and test out the best antennas,” says Schneider. “We want to show Americans that regardless of where you live, it is possible for you to cut the cord. And we want to help.”

The Great Race starts Saturday, June 18th in California and Richard will arrive in Moline, Illinois on Sunday, June 26th. Follow the Great Race and Richard’s crazy antics at,  InstagramTwitter and Facebook and live streaming on UStream.
