They haven't changed that much. If you want one that goes up to about 20gig you're still looking at $30,000 + without options. I just want something to scan OTA to see if I have a signal level...

Interesting considering WYFX-LD is a low power digital that's not a Class A and will have an unknown history after the spectrum auction.

The article states ...ATSC mobile. Lower resolution and smaller bandwidth for mobile receivers. To get full HD while moving is a plus.

Looks like they are 1080 OTA and channel 103 on Armstrong but the Armstrong guide data is missing. A rescan on my HDTV changed the PSIP from WBCB to WBCB-HD.
