For those that don't know there's been an ongoing battle to get over the air broadcasting of all the local channels in HD for northern Colorado for years. This is the first time we've had some positive news and if it passes it means that you will be able to use a regular antenna to get ALL the local channels in HD w/o having to pay a monthly fee. A HD tuner and a simple TV antenna (can be anywhere from a $19 RadioShack special that sits on top of your T to an elaborate roof mounted antenna) is all you will need to get all the locals in full HD w/o paying a single dime for a monthly HD package.

Lake Cedar Group has gotten a bill into Congress (The legislation is SB 4092) that will allow feds to override local zoning on telecomunications. It passed the Senate today (!!!) but, it still needs to pass the House of Representatives.

THEY ARE VOTING FRIDAY (TOMORROW), so we all need to call them ASAP to show our support. (Even leaving a message at their offices tonight). I hate emails that say this but FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE IN NORTHERN COLORADO THAT YOU KNOW!

Please call the following offices as soon as possible and tell them that 9 years without HDTV is enough and you want free over the air HDTV in Denver and you support the pending legislation.
--------------------------------

I recommend calling as the vote is tomorrow (Friday) and an email may take too long to get read. (But doing both can't hurt either)

Just think... before long we could have ALL the local channels in full high def w/o paying a single thin dime. Please take 5min to ensure that this is possible even if you don't have a HDTV right now as this window may not present itself for many years to come again. We get one shot at this!

Well, it's a sad state that it has come to this. It's not that WE have taken it to this level it's that the government feels the need to have their hand in EVERYTHING including doing unconstitutional things that go under the radar.

Here's (http://tinyurl.com/yegomb) a very short article in the Rocky Mountain News that will give a brief synopsis of what we've been up against and you will have a better idea of what this is really about. It's more than just TV... it's a vote for the people really.
