WFXT-DT (Channel 31) off the air?

Might this also be caused by the lead time for a replacement of the required
part?  My guess is that the HDTV stuff is being installed as soon as the
factories crank it out and that there's not a lot of spare parts inventory
sitting around yet.  This, of course, is just speculation.
