During the big Sandy storm, analog radio provided the most reliable means of
wireless communication.  DTV might have been nice in some places (those
without LED lighting, if you've been following Charlie Rhodes), but not
where outdoor antennas were blown off and short-battery-life portables had
nowhere to be charged.

So now you would like to move the last reliable form of emergency mass
communications exclusively to a more-power-consumptive,
digital-cliff-suffering form?

No, thank you.

TTFN,
Mark
