    To be honest, I have nothing to base that on other than that's just what it said on the KUHT Wikipedia page. I have no idea where it is, but I get it pretty well so I assume it is probably correct. KTRK is supposed to be in Missouri city as well, but I have problems getting it OTA. I think I just have some bad cabling honestly.

    According to antennaweb.org all the major transmitters are in Missouri City. I used to work right down the street.

    I live west of Katy and north of Richmond, I only have trouble with NBC for some reason with a cheapo antenna in the attic.

    Atlanta is one of around 30 PBS HD stations reported uplinked in testing phase on Sep. 8, including many other major cities. Nothing new since then.

    Finally. I've looking forward to this for a long while. While a lot of their programming wasn't shot in HD at least now when some is we'll see it in HD.

    For those in LA. KCET (28) will become an independent station and lose it's PBS affiliation. You still did get two other PBS stations though.

    So here we sit in the San Francisco Bay Area where Dish doesn't offer KQED in HD. Just not enough interest for a PBS station in a region with demographics like ours?

    Too many stations in the market, in my opinion. In order for the market to count toward the threshold of 30% of markets carried in HD having all of their channels carried in HD by next February DISH must set aside enough transponder space to carry EVERY channel in the market in HD ... even if said channels do not have HD signals. Reserving that space for a small market is a lot easier than a large one.

    Carrying KQED HD would not move DISH forward on the national goal. It could be added, but it's addition would only serve local needs. DISH has to think of the big picture.

    That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing it added.

    That is what everybody was thinking, including me. But then why did Dish just add three HD PBS stations in Los Angeles yesterday?

    LA also has Univision, Telefutura, and CW stations in HD ... and is probably a more important market, if you only have the bandwidth to do one.

    So I may be asking a question that has already been discussed, but I will ask anyway. At this time which markets, if any, have all their stations carried by Dish in HD?

    I assume that the next markets to get all their stations carried in HD will be small markets that are already carried in HD partially, perhaps only having one or two more stations that have to be carried in HD to complete full HD carriage. Or perhaps the next markets to go all HD will be very small, short markets that are currently carried only in SD. Any ideas?

    It is a tricky question as markets may have all of their HDs carried (the requirement) but still have SD channels carried. There may also be markets missing a channel due to a contract dispute that would still count toward the carriage offered based threshold. At the moment DISH needs all available HD carried (or offered carriage - stations can refuse carriage) in 15% of the markets where any local channel is carried in HD. That threshold will rise to 30% in February.

    I suppose I could take a day and do an audit.

    We're left in the cold..... I wonder why we have so many PBS stations showing basically the same shows? KQED has 3 repeaters around here.
