Berlin, September, 1963: When the government of East Berlin used loudspeakers to drown out a speech by West German President Heinrich Luebke in the western sector of the city, the West retaliated with a mobile unit of four heavy trucks and six Volkswagen buses equipped with clusters of even more powerful speakers that could be hoisted in the air and focused on any unfortunate spot on the other side of the Wall.
