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, 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.
