    Well as a person who is active in communications I fell that waiting tell June is a joke, there has been many many adds and info sent out to the amaerican people, they should have been prepared, wht go out and buy a converter box, hook up , why do we need to wait for the goverment to buy us a box .. I feel sorry for thr broadcasters who have spent money and a lot to be prepared for the change over. now they are stuck with addition bills on two diffrent tx sites . guess the cost of adverting will increase to cover the expense. I feel we should go ahead with the change..
