Actually, I collected a pretty good sized group of signers for a petition to Meredith last year. We got an answer from them saying we weren't a significant portion of their viewer base, so they could not justify HDTV. They are transmitting DTV, which is going with the letter of the FCC, but not the spirit.
I was getting ready to contact Senator John McCain who was on the senate committee looking into this transition to DTV, but two things happened:
1. Senator McCain (our local AZ senator) is no longer on that committee, thanks to the re-alignment of powers in the senate.
2. Sept 11th.
There are other disparate efforts in the area trying to get things happening with CBS and KPHO, and frankly, it doesn't look good, and, due to the reasons listed above, I've kinda gotten disheartened by the whole effort. Some local dealers seem slightly interested, but it must not be affecting their sales...
I posted the original notice as information, not as a rallying call. :(
