I think we'll see them phased in at the retail level and absorbed into 
the marketplace. I agree that there's no sense of urgency to run out and 
buy one.  I do think that once even base level cars come standard with 
integrated radios with satellite where HD locals and nationals are all 
seamlessly accessed that there will be a place for terrestrials to wake 
up and do local radio again.  That will be the only thing a national 
radio station can't. So, I remain hopeful.
