You know, I don't want to get into a flame war, but I'll just throw in my 2¢ here...
I don't know that this is fair. I think that the stations here do a fairly decent job. No its not perfect (and I think that everyone involved with the broadcasts would agree with that), but given what everyone has to work with, I gotta say, I think for our market size (population, not geographic
We're what, 35?) SLC has VERY decent HD - with the obvious exceptions being KSTU's antenna woes, KUWB's PSIP problems (my personal pet peeve with my t165), and KPNZ's lack of, well, everything digital because of broadcast spectrum limitations (read: USDTV). Its like people can't see the progress made in the last two years (or more, but I haven't been following HD any longer).

Go read some of the posts. The names have changed, but the situation is much the same (except Milwaukee. I have no idea why no one contributes there, but hey, after hearing my wife's description of the place from her 3 year contract there, I'm not too surprised.)
However, in searching around, I had my suspicions confirmed. You don't find a lot of engineers contributing like you do here.
With that said, and if anyone is still listening, does anyone know anything about KPNZ's digital plans? I noticed that they've still got a DT construction permit in. (http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?state=&call=kpnz
