Yes, thanks from me too!
Now I know why NBC isn't transmitting.
The blame (as of today) is that the FCC hasn't approved plans for the antenna.
Now, the FCC is made up of divisions, and only some people work the HD area. Since I used to work in a government type of job for a while, I know that it appears that many people are in charge. But I also know that only a few do any work.
And like the FAA, where maybe 1 or a few are really doing the work that has been assigned, they are overworked and under budget. I am not saying that there are people sitting around, I am saying that very few are assigned the tasks that we are looking for.
For the FCC, I believe that there may be only a very few persons involved in making decesions for antenna licenses.
They are probably in charge of the entire country, so there is overworked. Then if and when they do make a decesion, there is a half of dozen people that have to approve it!
So a simple job that would take a day, or maybe a week, can take months (and years).
So once NBC gets the approval, then I assume they will just start to work on the HD antenna.
And, of course they will have to ask for an extension, because nothing can be done until the FCC makes a decision.
