I'm quite sure that Ted would love to get better monitoring and switching equipment, and personnel that would/could treat the WTKR-DT signal with equal importance to the analog side. But he isn't the one who makes those decisions.
I suppose a valid point of discussion is whether the FCC should step in and regulate, or whether the market will simply force the issue next year, but whatever the end result, WTKR was one of the first (the first?) to get HD running here.
Actually Bruce it was WAVY And Les G. that slipped ahead of the competition to broadcast HD first in THIS area. I remember the days... just Leno in HD.
However, Ted Hand was there in '96 I believe when WRAL in Raleigh did the first HD broadcast in the country.
I am sure Ted managed a few days off for the Holiday and is going to dread coming onto this board once he finds out what transpired over Thanksgiving weekend with football and HD. Maybe he can use this as some ammo to help convince higher management that we are getting closer to the THE day
While there have been a couple of less than helpful comments on the thread the past couple of days these engineers are pretty thick skinned and will understand most of the frustration.
Here's to HD!
