at 8 million total homes still not ready
There are probably at least 8 million homes that will be out of range.
Channels 2-6 are going away completely, and those were the only
frequencies low enough to reach a lot of hilly rural areas.

Line-of-sight to a transmitter is not always possible.

And roof antennas are not always a solution for everyone either. I wonder how many stations are broadcasting DTV signals at full power? The only statistcs I've been able to find for broadcast numbers are at the dtvanswers.com webpage.

Today, 1,631 out of 1,760 full-power television stations nationwide already offer digital programming in every market in America.

Some people can't have an outdoor antenna. I live 30.8 miles from the major city (Boston, MA). All the transmitters are located in Needham, Mass.

After febuary I will only get 1 channel or nothing at all. No more tv for me I guess.

They need to go FULL POWER so that the issue will go away.
