Part of the genius of modern technological society is the dynamic ingenuity with which solutions are found to problems thought to be impossible. When the FCC Table of Television allocations was released to the public, there was much cynical scoffing at the television assignments in communities of less than 2500 persons. Yet, today there is a rapidly growing and soundly financed industry providing excellent television service to communities of but a few thousand persons. The explosive and belligerent development of re-radiator systems operating without FCC approval is a phenomenon involving towns of less than 2500 persons, for the most part. Low population density is no longer an excuse for the failure to provide either the luxuries or necessities of modern living.
