I don't quite understand how OTA TV can be so bad in Gainesville. Maybe
there's hope, because there are lots of translators there, and new ones
on the way, it seems.

Within a 30 mile radius of the U of F, rabbit ear range, I only get four
DTT stations:

WCJB-DT  ABC  344 KW  10.5 mi  214 deg
WGFL-DT  CBS  168 KW  16.5 mi  262 deg
WUFT-DT  PBS  1 MW     6.4 mi  300 deg
WOGX-DT  Fox  500 KW  21.0 mi  184 deg

But I count 15 translators, either operating or new, that must be there
for more than just religious programming? And they will have to go
digital too, at some point.

For NBC, you supposedly have to go all the way to Daytona Beach, 79
miles away. Surely, a few of the 15 translators can go to NBC, CW, and

Maybe I see why Craig thinks there's no option. What's the deal with
Gainesville, anyway?
