    This is kind of a pet peeve of mine, maybe because I'm a teckie. But, now that there has been a reprieve till June on the switch, I am wondering why people are still not ready for this cut-over. It has been more than 3 years since this change was announced, and since then HD flat-screen TVs have been flying off the shelves. I didn't jump on the bandwagon and buy one of the first sets (I just bought a 52" LG for $1700 that would have cost $20,000 back then). But HD has been available for a L-O-N-G time, along with the converters that will be needed if you still live with an antenna system. There is no change if you're on cable or satellite.

    The only real concern is with emergency battery-operated TV sets which will not work after the fact.

    So why now is it that people are still not ready for the switch? It's like waiting until midnight on April 15th to file your tax return...if you ain't ready now, why not? It's gonna happen, so get rid of that old Magnavox 26" console with the AM/FM and turntable and get a REAL TV. You know you want to!

    some of the cheaper converters like the ones at ABC are battery powered, all you have to do is to hook it up to a antenna then put a 1/2 wave dipole ( easy to make) on the antenna out jack and it will transmit a low powered signal that could be received by any analog TV in your house. So all you would have to do is to tune your emergency TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on which you set the converter output to. BTY U can do that with any of the converters not just the battery powered one.
