UHF vs. VHF

As respects antennas, the fact that WWAY and WECT are broadcasting on UHF (46 & 44 for DTV) instead of Low-VHF (3 & 6 for analog) seems to be largely ignored. Actually, all of the Wilmington local stations are now only UHF for digital, though this will not be the case for most of the rest of the country. So, fighting with rabbit ears is kind of silly, since the loop portion of set-tops are used for UHF. I wonder how many VHF only antennas are in use in Wilmington as well as twin lead to outdoor antennas. I will add TVfool.com as a good source for determining reception prospects. Good luck with an antenna right on top of an old TV. CRT's = noise. Also, amplified antennas can often hurt more than they help.
