Premier w/ HD, No HD Extra Pak

Normally 293 is a 721 but w/ the freeview this week it is showing.

379, 408, 416 are in my guide but not being received.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown

It sounds like things are going great. I'm going to give them some time to digest this data and then run this poll again in a few weeks. Well done, people!
