92. Why spread misinformation?
Analog sets will not be "unusable" if (a) you have cable; (b) you have DBS or (c) you get a digital to analog converter, the cost of which could be effectively as little as zero (one company has announced that it will be selling digital to analog converters for $39.95, which means that they're basically free with the government-issued $40 off coupon).

And the freed up spectrum will be going to various places, including first responders for emergency communications.

And the spectrum is being auctioned off, not sold, with the proceeds going to the treasury.

Got any other myths you need debunked?

Oh,yeah. The government told people that they had to stop riding horses in the streets and had to get around in cars. Damn them.
