First of all congratulations to the entire Fox team. I know that 
everyone is excited about the possibility of another FM bird in the near 

As for Ham-TV, I agree that more information about the ground station 
requirements would be most welcome. I just managed to win a TechnoTrend 
HDTV satellite PCI Card on ebay ($60 bucks with shipping) so I hope this 
is a good start on a complete station.

The next hurdle for me will be assembling a workable antenna and I 
assume an AZ/EL rotor with automatic tracking? It does seem like 
information is incomplete
considering how close to the go live date we are. I know that this type 
of digital TV is in wide use in Europe, so maybe some of these folks can 
lend the yanks
a hand?
