What is a Local Receive Facility?

I live in Toledo, Ohio and don't have HD Local delievered by DirecTV yet. I was looking on their new website and stumbled across a page for Local Receive Facilities. There was a SD and HD address for Toledo. Does this mean that Toledo will be receiving HD Locals soon? Just curious because I would like to not depend on my OTA (indoor) anymore. What is a Local Receive Facility?

Thanks in advance!

I think it's exactly what it sounds like. :) The place where Directv receives local signals from a particular market for satellite retransmission. Whether or when you'll get local HD from Directv however, I don't think anyone outside Directv knows.
If Directv has a local receive facility for HD, that should be an encouraging hint as to the future.
