Pete Putman mentions KSNV on channel 2. In June of 2012 I tried to help a poster in Las Vegas who was having trouble receiving KSNV. I told him it was on VHF channel 2 (virtual 3.1), which it was at the time. He didn't believe me and said it couldn't be on 2.

3.1 and 3.2 are digital UHF that I received LAST YEAR in my house a mile south of here with only Rabbit Ears on a ten foot pole, and now can't get them.

If they have gone back to using the vhf low freqs, that wouldn't make sense.
OTA includes both digital and analog channels !
The old VHF frequencies, especially 54 to 60 MHZ Is unusable for commercial TV now. Has been for eons because of six meters ham band which I use to work exclusively when I was a teenager and knew John The Baptist!

I quit! ! ! !
He is a ham and retired military commo guy who got so upset that I had to delete my earlier posts to him. After I had something to eat, I tried to explain it to him again.
