Re: Could this be a chance to tell the NAB to GO TO HELL?

I think it's an *excellent* opportunity to tell the NAB (and the FCC) where to go. I pretty much stopped watching TV years ago - as the old song said, "57 channels and nothing on"... Today all you have to choose from are a bunch of dumb talk shows and dumber "reality" shows (that are nowhere near reality) and absolutely nothing worth a dime per month, let alone $70/mo and rising.

I don't own a TV set and, using dial-up, I can't stream. And I do not miss it. (Of course, I don't own a smart phone, either!) If there's ever a program I want to see I'll wait until I can buy the DVD set at WallyWorld or something like that. It's not that I'm a luddite, but I was raised on radio and still enjoy it. It's "free".

Dude is correct; when the Buffalo stations went digital they lost thousands of viewers; there's NO WAY you can get them out here in the sticks unless you live on a hilltop. Reason? The FCC's engineers decided that by going digital the stations could get by with just 10% of the analog xmtr power! It's taken this long for them to acknowledge their errors and start granting massive power increases to those stations. And it's going to take even longer for those stations to build out the higher powered digital transmitters.
