No I mean they are probably going to build a one way national broadcast 
network period. This should work with any carrier that already has a 
CDMA network for cellular. There will be no CDMA in the 6 MHz.

I don't think they have figured a lot of this out. Like I said before 
how do they do a national SFN and deliver any quantity of local content. 
If they have local SFNs they then have to have large areas around that 
SFN with no coverage at all. Any local content would have to be 
delivered nationally. You can do this with traffic and weather if it is 
all in minimal code but beyond that it would get dicey.
