There has been some move to digital locally. I just got my ticket
less than 12 months ago, and still don't even have a home unit
(mobile in my truck - mobile in the wife's truck - two HT's),
so digital is not a high priority to me.

I do see the appeal, though...

 RB> Thanks for thowing this out there.
