Being an amateur radio operator myself, I can say that expense is
probably the biggest factor here. HDTV also requires a ton of
bandwidth, and our frequencies are already under assault. It's too
bad we don't have the resources to experiment with HDTV; packet radio,
TCP/IP, and other internet protocols were pioneered by hams in the
1970's and 80's.

Sure Neil. I'll start it by stating that I am a part-time audiophile
(what musician isn't?) but very definitely not a videophile. And for
me that is very much because I work in the video industry-- I don't
like taking my work home with me.
