Larry will discussed the FCC issues stating that the FCC has a DTV rollout time set and also discussed the new 222G Tower Standard that is awaiting ANSI approval. The standard has created new categories and will affect many, especially those in high wind areas. Most of the towers in this area are C and D standard. Accidents led to the change of standards. Though safer, the new standard will drive up costs.
