Re: Government control hasexceededconstitutionallimitations.



The TV channels being refarmed as result of digital-TV are high-end 
UHF channels (so called 700-MHz band).  I have not heard anything 
about the low VHF channels (2-6).  I would be surprised if this were 
true.  Channels 2-4 have long been prized for there long-range 
coverage ability.

Two years ago I stopped using on-air Broadcast TV and switched to 
satellite feed of local Network TV ($6.95/mo on Dish Network).  At my 
QTH the off-air signal at 70-miles is not very good.  On ku-band 
satellite it is DVD perfect.
