In a nutshell, the "Repack" is an FCC plan to clear bandwidth in the higher TV channel numbers for more cell service. They held a reverse auction and some stations decided to get paid for moving to a lower channel number. Cell providers then bought up the newly free airspace. TV stations need to vacate their channels by 2020 I think, depending on their location.

Anyway, 26 is still UHF, so the DB4e (or any decent UHF antenna) should still get it.
