The program has taken several years to deploy. During
that time the global economy has changed significantly.
Are you saying that programs should roll forwards
regardless of short term problems?
Isn't that called deficit spending?
Hard to see where you're coming from; Bashing the
president-elect? Gleeful at Fed Govmnt waste? Clinging
to analog TV for another six months?

Take your comments to PM is you don't want
others to read them.

I find your opinions interesting, but I'm wondering
where your head is at...

The only TV news I watch regularly is John Stewart.
Local TV news (and we're the fifth largest ADI...)
is worse that drama class at the local ju-co.

Cable TV News is little more than hollywood gossip
as told by underwear models!

Bring back Alastair Cooke! (oops he's dead).

hehehe!! Ah. hehehe!!

Bigglez, you should write a book on diplomacy and etiquette. I would buy it. "Interpersonal Relationships for Dummies" hehehe!! I especially like the "(sic)" added into the quote!! Now that's funny! Here's an idea for the book:

"When you feel that an associate or employee is wrong, don't hesitate to let him know in detail exactly how wrong he is. Then, to emphasise your obvious superiority, send him 2 more messages criticizing his spelling, grammar, and writing style. This thoroughness will impress everybody".

Is that bow tie antenna a stacked vertical or horizontal array?

I have to agree with Bob Scott.

with your opinions, *If* you don't want others
in a semi-public group to read or respond.

Thanks In Advance!

Sorry if that's all you got from my earlier comments.
Mral made a derogatory remark in public aimed at me
(as did another long standing regular poster).

The other poster appologized, and yet another
regular poster PM'd me the back story about
a notorious member that left the group weeks before
I joined up.

Mral appologized under pressure but refused to say
(in PM or otherwise) why he posted it, other than
the obvious zinger against me. Mral thought I might
have time to read his wandering diatribe about everything
important to him (except the request to explain himself).

When asked (repeatedly) to explain, the cry-baby
then went to the site admin. The thread was erased
the next biz day, so any PMs on that topic are also
irrelavant. I also got private email from the site admin
regarding this incident, so I assume they are aware
of other issues with some of the regular users.

Case closed. Let's move on...

Perhaps this site's PM system is broken?
I currently have four messages in my OUTBOX:
Sat Nov 29, 2008 2:29 am
Tue Nov 18, 2008 12:02 pm
Wed Sep 24, 2008 10:53 am

I was having trouble getting NBC on my DTV box so I emailed the affiliate in Hastings, NE. I asked if I needed a better UHF antenna. They told me that most affiliates in NE are transmitting both UHF for the digital and VHF for the analog Ntsc signal. After Feb 9, they are all moving the ATSC signal back down to the VHF band. This may make my reception improve. We went from 4 channels in Nowhere, NE to 9 channels and all kinds of retro TV programs from the 80's (woo hoo!)

Thanks for correcting it. My bad. Never had to write it down before.
