Looks like the Yanks have at least another 4 months before the
rednecks riot because their analog TV's don't work any more, and they
can't watch Ophra.

You would think the media folks would have been in the middle of this
giving bribes to the FCC--or whatever was going on.
So, how did it turn out that the switch came in the *middle* of the TV
season?

....and did the bureaucrats never think about geriatrics in Minnesota
having to climb onto their roofs to dick with antennas in February?

A cow-orker here told me that, and said that it's because the Fed doesn't
have enough money to supply all of those coupons.

But this is the first that I've heard an "official" report.

When I went to that website to request the coupon, it said it can't send
one to an industrial address - I live in my RV, parked on the factory
parking lot, and have been using their address for some years now.

Thanks!

Dave.

Actually the wait is optional. Four of the local stations have announced
they are still changing in February - another one hasn't said yet. They
are apparently required to give 30 days notice of the changeover - which
all the stations around here have been doing since December.
