Broadcasting any signal costs money. By broadcasting a 'fixed message' to remind those that didn't bother to get a converter box or sign up for satellite or cable TV is not a feasible way of serving those who had a year to get a box or alternate service.

On topic: delaying the use of the 700Mhz spectrum is dangerous for those emergency communications systems.

This has nothing to do with seniors knowing about getting a converter box or getting cable.

This article on RCR Wireless makes it sound like it's a matter of waiting for more people to get their coupons for $40 off of a converter box. They've had a year. The delay would be disastrous.
