Analog TV goes dead in 6 months; is largely-rural Alaska ready?

In six months, television viewers who aren’t ready for the conversion to digital will be out of luck — unable to watch broadcast TV. Federal law requires TV stations to switch over to a digital signal on February 17, 2009. The FCC estimates that 20% of Americans still don’t know about the change-over, so they’re ramping up public education efforts in the coming weeks.
