Under the roof of the Gray Coe there are countless microphones, with each microphone being suspended from the ceiling just like a clothes hook. At the beginning of a shift, each miner lowers his microphone, like the announcer in a boxing ring did in the past. When the bell rings three times, the crew goes down into the mine. Glückauf!
