Well, our transmitter proofed out beautifully. We are set in that aspect. Today the crew finished installation of the transmission line on the tower. The first half of the day was too windy. From here on out they will be changing out guy lines.
We have 15 lines to change out. On a good day they say they can do two lines. They need days with very little wind to do it. Knowing Nebraska weather, I'm hoping to be on by March 25.
Following is what CBS is going to be sending us in HDTV for March Madness:
WILL BE FED IN HDTV
FRIDAY, MARCH 21
SUNDAY, MARCH 23
THE BIRMINGHAM-JEFFERSON CIVIC CENTER IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA

From the Final Eight, all games will be available in HDTV.
Throughout the Tournament, we may be scheduled to run non-HDTV games on our NTSC Channel 3, but CBS has asked us to air HDTV games on our HDTV transmitter. We will switch and feed these seperately.
Keep the excitement, we are working hard.
