Advertisements As I understand it, nearly all digital OTA stations are broadcasting at temporary frequencies in the UHF band. Many of us have nice little UHF antennas to pick up these channels to enjoy HD programming. When analog broadcasting goes dark in 2009, many stations will move their digital broadcast back down to their formerly analog VHF frequency, right? Much of the UHF band will be allocated to other uses at that time, if I recall correctly. Is there a reliable way to predict in advance how well our antennas will do when digital signals become the norm on VHF? The main part of my antenna, which sits on my mantle, is for UHF, but it does have two telescoping rabbit ear elements which I assume are VHF, but I have no current use for them between cable and the OTA digital. I have briefly played with it and my television's analog tuner and the VHF stuff doesn't come in so well. Perhaps digital broadcasts on these frequencies will behave much differently than the analog ones do now. Is this all going to be an enormous pain when digital broadcasts move, or do I have this all wrong?
