Well asking a bunch of people who have no say in the matter over and over isn't going to help things IMO. What we can do is start writing letters to Grant Media. The most important thing is to ask them to do HD, because from how Robert said it, Grant has had some bad experiences with waivers and probably won't be willing to grant more.
Try to point out that Fox will be providing a way to 'splice' in Fox-HD 720p + DD5.1 right into their stream if the encoder is at the studio (they won't even need an HD encoder if I understand correctly how this is going to work). So they could do HD on both stations if the encoder was at the studio and completely create the signals there. Then microwave each signal out and feed it right into the transmitter.
By doing it that way, they can eventually drop Fox-HD for WB-HD at the WJPR station if they wanted to with less trouble. The less you have to do at the top of a mountain, the better off you are.
