      As one of those unemployed 12%, and being a HAM Radio licensee, having
      gone thru what you so eloquently state, the only good thing is being
      able to receive OTA Signals. Comcrap priced themselves out of my wallet
      a few years ago. The AT&T U-Verse and the Dish based services too.

After you drop your cell phone, your satellite TV, your DSL, your gym membership, your health and life insurance, and your meals consist of a "Buck Double" at Burger King, watching OTA TV picks up importance in your life.
