  SHUTTING DOWN DTV TRANSMITTERS TO SAVE ELECTRICITY - COMMENT

  I agree...shut down the DTV transmitters until they unravel
this mess.  Nobody watches them anyway!

  [See what you can do at your station, and in your own home
town, to reduce power consumption.  The power shortage won't be
resolved soon, and is expected to worsen this summer.  -Ed.]
