I think they would rather have you listening to the secondary
channels part of the time than having you buy satellite radio and
never listen to the main channel. I think the broadcast stations
will do just about anything to keep people away from satellite, that
is their biggest fear.
That being said I'll be getting to listen to the secondary channels
myself next week, my Sangean tuner is scheduled to be delivered on
Monday. If anyone's interested, Ambient Weather has them for $199.00
with free shipping http://www.ambientweather.com/sasrhdt1.html, last
week when I placed my order it was on sale for $179.10 but I had to
pay $10.48 for shipping, it was still a bit cheaper than getting one
at You Blew It and paying sales tax. The VHF-UHF Digest (Worldwide
TV-FM DX Assn.) had an excellent review if this tuner, the reviewer
said the selectivity is noticeably better than a Carver TX-11, which
happens to be what I'm replacing with the Sangean.
