And, as someone who owns a couple of CDPD radios which are now dead,
and an iDen radio that will die soon, I can understand this,
particularly when comparing the expected service life of those to the
much longer expected service life of an analog TV.

We have a >50year old Zenith on our back porch.  If I replace a 5u4 and
a 12au7, it will work again... for another 2 years.
