Hey, guys? Why does all TV go digital in Feb 2009?
My local channels' digital signals (yes, I got the coupon, the frackin' box isn't free) suck, often and largely.
Why would the fedgov want to take away all analog (free) tv?
I haven't heard anybody explain this at all -- just warn me that it's coming and I gotta buy the box or lose my signal.
Nobody's told me W H Y this is.
Digital signals (like UHF) are way more vulnerable to distance / weather. Are these also more vulnerable to jamming? I'm not giving you a conspiracy theory; I'm trying to find out why the government made the decision it did.
