19. Most Low VHF Stations (Channels 2-6) Are NOT Moving Back
Here in the Bay Area, we have one digital VHF station. Post-transition we will have 2. Everything else will stay on UHF. Most of the VHF TV spectrum here will be empty.

To receive UHF here requires a top-of-the-line dedicated UHF antenna (Antennas Direct 91XG) and pre-amp (Channelmaster 7777) placed at just the right angle and height.
