Wow. All the best on your move, Tom.

Jacksonville seems like a good bet, on paper anyway. They have 8 full
power DTT stations (actually one is VHF), and they are all pretty much
co-located, it seems. Certainly from Gainesville they should appear that
way. As the crow flies, looks like 55 miles. A bit of a stretch, but it
should be okay for full power stations.

So between Gainesville and Jacksonville, you have a decent choice. See
Craig? That's why OTA TV needs to go between markets.

We have a Gainesville gang on OpenDTV.
