Are you Ready to Go Digital?

On February 17, old analog transmitters throughout the US will go dark as broadcasters will begin transmitting their TV signals only in digital format. Using digital signals will free up wasted wireless spectrum...most of which has already been auctioned off by the government. The Obama team has recently urged a delay in digital transmission, concerned that the government is not doing enough to help Americans in rural, poor, and minority communities in particular prepare for the switch. How about you? Are you ready?
