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.
