> The DTV radio I can offer to you is a
> modified version of what we sell to reader services that utilize one of
> the "alternate audio" channels on a terrestrial (off air) digital TV
> channel to carry their broadcasts.  This radio is fairly easy for a
> blind person to use, and the users instructions will come in Braille or
> as an audio presentation on a compact disk.  The radio doesn't have
> speech output, but its operation is fairly intuitive.  The radio is
> housed in a small wooden cabinet with its own speaker.  There are rear
> panel stereo RCA type audio output jacks on this radio, that allow you
> to connect this radio to your hi fi audio system.  The radio tunes all
> off air digital television channels from channel #2 to channel #69.
> This is a digital TV receiver capable of decoding all ATSC formatted
> broadcasts.  This radio will not receive any analog TV broadcasts if
> there are still any of these available in your area.  Additionally, this
> radio will not receive most of the TV channels carried by your cable
> company.  The radio has its own telescoping whip antenna for receiving
> DTV channels within approximately twenty to thirty miles from you.  You
> can also disconnect this built in antenna and use a superior indoor or
> outdoor tv antenna for better reception of distant broadcast TV signals.
> A front panel keypad allows you to set up this radio for reception of
> digital TV channels in your area.  This front panel keypad also allows
> you to select and listen too, any of the available tv channels and
> alternate audio programs available at your location.  The radio operates
> from standard 120 volt AC power outlets.  The radio cabinet measures
> eight inches high, twelve inches wide, and four inches deep.  These
> dimmensions asume that the telescoping whip antenna is in its fully
> collapsed position.  The radio comes with a two year parts and labor
> warranty.  The price for this radio is $165.00 each.  This price doesn't
> include shipping charges.  If you're interested in purchasing one or
> more of these radios, let me know.  It can sometimes take us
> approximately fifteen to thirty days to deliver one of these radios.
