[opendtv] Re: The "real" problem with OFDM in the U.S.

Several ancient Greek philosophers were arguing about 'how
many teeth a horse has.' Finally one of the younger of the group
who had remained silent for the whole time asked,=20
"Why not find a horse and count them?"
The others suggested he should remain silent until he better understood
what they were talking about.

So is the object here to test your skills of debate and reasoning or to=20
get the correct information?

Cliff, let's stay on thread here. we're talking about
creating a fictitious new system of national networks.
Nothing to do with current owners.

You're the one not getting it.

If these are national networks now, you would aim
your antenna at the best signal source. Not
necessarily the closest one.

Philadelphia being weaker would be a perfect reason
to ignore Phila "repeaters" and go with Baltimore
instead. National networks, get it? No reason to
worry about local "markets."

This is exactly how European OTA users in rural
communities aim their antennas. At the best source.

By the way, that pattern I showed, where the
Wash/Balt and NYC frequencies would be the same,
and the Phildelphia frequencies are between these,
would hbe repeated up and down the East Coast.
So Richmond VA would be like Phila, perhaps Boston
too. And so on.
