Mark Schubin said that the latest Samsung prototype was not as good as 
the LG prototype. That leaves the LG prototype on top of the heap still 
unless you have new info.

And the LG prototype could be defeated easily by standing in a spot on 
either side of it or walking in front of it. That at a location in plain 
sight of the Empire State Building, 50 blocks away and at over 400 ft. 
 From that same site we were broadcasting COFDM which could be received 
easily while driving around the  base of the ESB in all the clutter of 
traffic and people and with NO line of sight and most of the time with 
blocks of buildings between us all while MOBILE. And yes with only a 
little less than one kW of ERP.

I will put my money on COFDM 2k ala the UK anytime.

Notice that COFDM is now being used by ENG HD providers. Wonder why they 
didn't use a Linx solution?
