Always wondered what the broadcasters reaction would be when mobile DTV 
started to actually arrive. With both Qualcomm and Modeo talking of 
offering service in NYC this year we may find out. I know of one 
broadcaster who is starting to freak out on this and it is not Sinclair.


So does anyone expect mobile DTV on cell phones and Ipods etc. to 
co-exist with battery packed head beanie rotator antennas and 8-VSB in 
the US?

I don't think so. I think 8-VSB goes away. Either we change the 
modulation or OTA "broadcasting" just whithers to where they sell off 
some more spectrum in a few more years. Sort of a vegetative state.
