First of all, I agree with all the 'curmudgeons

Wow, R U kidding me? They are my most reliable station with my best signal strength(from 147 miles
). If they are putting out only low power, they are as big of a fluke as KMGH was prior to moving to RP.
As far as the FCC incompetence goes. They are just like the rest of our wonderful government. If it's not for political reasons or to pacify corporate America, it usually doesn't happen. I find it particularly distasteful that they just sat on their hands through this whole episode.
I do find it funny that in a state with the worst abusers of the FCC digital full power 'rules', 2 senators had to create a bill 'under the cover of darkness' to move things along. It would have just been easier if the FCC had the balls to force the issue years ago.
As far as LCG is concerned, I expect them to 'keep playing the game'. I would guess that the '15 to 18 months' estimate is just more BS to try and appear that they really
are planning on going live prior to 02/17/09. So, I don't expect it.
After all, the millions required does LCG more good invested than sitting on the side of a mountain depreciating.
