What about those Canadian stations in border cities competing with US stations using Voltair. Should they have to shut "the box" off? (Numeris should buy one for all those stations.)


Another great post Richard...

What shouldn't be lost in all the convos about "the box" (and has been brought into a much brighter light since this started) is the listening/meter environment that the meter wearer is in is VITAL for proper encoding credit.

In a nutshell, the louder the environment the meter sits is, (kids yelling, dogs barking, people on cell phones) the more difficult it is for total and complete reception of the encoded signal. #truth
