As I mentioned in another post today, I would encourage all of you to write your congressmen and senators. That's not to say that anything will change in the near future. However, there are lobbyists in Washington who would like nothing better than for the FCC to eliminate broadcast television in its entirety. They use the excuse that broadcast spectrum is needed as we go forward with broadband media devices. That is hogwash. We already lost UHF channels 70-83 in the 80's to make way for cell phones. Then several years ago, we lost UHF 52-69. There is plenty of bandwidth to go around without destroying the rest of the broadcast spectrum.

Let your government officials know that you care about OTA television and that you don't want it eliminated. This is one way we can help preserve it for the future.
