What exactly is the "repack" you are talking about?
T Mobile was the highest bidder and took the lions share of spectrum or frequencies above UHF real channel 35, paying billions to the FCC for control of new cell phone business over the next several years, as I understand it.

So, instead of the current ceiling of channel 52, the new OTA TV ceiling will be channel 35, I think. OTA viewing will be limited to frequencies covering low VHF-high VHF and UHF up to channel 35, again as I understand it.

Cell phone business is MR. B-I-G.....
