Time Frame for HD Locals

I was just reading in the Direct TV forum a list of the markets and the expected order that they will receive HD Locals. Does anyone know if Dish has such a list. I recall that last month someone posted a list of the top 50. Is there a longer list? I live in the Grand Rapids, MI market. Would it be logical to assume that by the end of 2007 most markets would have HD local broadcasting on Dish?

We can certainly hope so. Although, those who need relatively expensive outdoor antenna systems for more rural or difficult reception areas, would certainly like to regain some of their investment.
Of course OTA is free other than reception hardware, which is no small advantage.
