Reductio ab adsurdum. Is "13 years" a "couple of decades"? And, quit whining. What would YOU have proposed to transition to DTV without a "loaner channel?" And, YOU AREN"T PAYING ATTENTION! WAKE UP! WAKE UP, TOM! WE AREN'T TALKING ABOUT CHANNELS ABOVE 51; THESE DEVICES WILL OPERATE ON CHANNELS 2-51 (excluding 37). They will kill your TV reception, Tom. And, you want them. Yeah, buddy!

In many ways it seems broadcasters are again circling the wagons to prevent some outsiders from gaining usage of spectrum. I think the last time it helped create the digital TV transition, loaning an extra channel to each broadcaster for a couple decades and keeping those channels from cellular and everyone else. Now that those channels will potentially have to be given back in 2009 we will see many new proposals for broadcaster usage of them, and all other possible spectrum. I predict all freed spectrum will end up in the hands of existing players in one way or another. - Tom ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways: - Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at FreeLists.org - By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word unsubscribe in the subject line.
