Thanks for the info.. from all.  It looks like a purely business decision by 
COX to cut two of the PBS off the cable offerings.  Seems the 'solution' is 
to buy the next higher level of "digital" service (which does not require a 
digital TV) or so they say,  and the problem is solved... As usual by the 
application of 'green grease".. Ya just got to love capitalism 
sometimes!...at least until you look at the rest of the world and then is 
starts looking VERY, VERY good again. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
    Man do I love that American Passport every time I come home and the 
Customs agent at Dulles says "welcome home".   Funny I've never heard of 
anyone trying to escape from the US either.    73 to all who replied and may 
still .. Glenn b. 73 Ka0ESA,
