We'd be willing to go to 1 MW but the FCC won't let us.  This whole 
convoluted process won't even let us place our DTV on our analog channel 
after turn-off.  We're stuck using yet a third frequency (our DTV is on 
Qualcomm's 55 right now) that isn't compatible with our transmission line 
lengths, and at our current pathetic power levels because the FCC says it 
replicates our NTSC coverage.
