    Some of you may have already seen this but just in case some missed it here it is again:



    It's a shame that our local area broadcasters are dragging their feet on their digital and HD broadcasting. In our rural area the analog signal is poor even with a good rooftop antenna and amplifier. The one local network broadcaster that is offering DTV in my area has a limited signal that only reaches out about 5-10 miles. Obviously I can't lock onto their signal nor can many others.



    Are you experiencing the same problems? Are your local area broadcasters dragging their feet in offering you DTV and HDTV?



    If you are then there is a website for you to help. There is a bill before Congress that can help all of us that can't receive DTV and HDTV.

    Please check it out:

    Are DBS and/or cable not an option for you? I understand the desire for OTA (which is all I have), but sometimes — especially in rural areas — you have to pony up for pay TV.

    No cable offered here but I have Dish Network... however if I don't qualify for locals I can't get the networks. If I did qualify I could only get CBS right now. This bill will allow Dish and Directv to offer all the networks in HDTV.

    There are several prime time shows that are offered in HD as well as a host of football games during the season. It would be nice to have them until my local broadcasters get off there duff.
