* Simply select a band from the tabs then a channel number the station is known by and that will take you to a page
where both the stations continuing to use the selected RF number and the ones that are using it as virtual channel are
listed along with the virtual channel Stations' current RF channel (on the right) or bottom if you kill the css or Page style ..
The above tabs lead to list with the (center) radio Frequency Channels according to the FCC assigned
frequency, in numeric order; beginning with the lowest RF channel 2 at 57.000 MHz and ending at RF channel
51 at 695.000 MHz.
Just In case you like counting on your fingers...
If you had the frequency for RF channel 2 you could count the VHF-Low band on your fingers
The only exception is a space between RF channel 4 and 5 of 10 MHz, then you count 6 MHz each.
and of course the same 6 MHz rule applies to the remaining two bands.
VHF High starts with RF channel 7 at 177.000 MHz and ends with channel 13 at 213.000 MHz.
The UHF band begins at RF channel 14 at 473.000 MHz and ends with channel 51 at 695.000 MHz.
Although RF channel 37 is not for normal TV use it is counted just the same.
only the center frequency for a particular TV RF channel is noted among these digital TV pages;
the same center frequencies per channel can be found in an ATSC DTV/PAL Digital TV set top box Receiver.
Manually add channels
These RF Channel numbers are the ones needed when manually adding channels.
If you are searching for a particular icon TV channel "The Channel number a station is known by"; use this
Digital TV Station Channel link to find the station RF Channel or select a listed received channel link for
(This leads to the correct RF channel on the right pane and some received stations on the left.)
The RF Channel can then be used to scan for a selected station service that can then be added to your
Digital TV channel list.
The virtual channel number you see on those links are most likely the old channel number the station had before the
change to digital video format; they do this for the sake of maintaining Station ID clarity to loyal viewers from times
RF channel number and virtual number
For Some stations the RF channel number and virtual channel number (The number displayed) can be; one and the same.
Unlike the Real RF Channels that only go as high as 51, Virtual channels go to 69 and could go higher but so far I have
seen but one and that was Channel 70 and a matter of the Digital TV unit default; used and under rare circumstance,
results differed amoung other units.
You can read more on this odd Channel 70 and see an example by visiting this No_Channel_70_TV_Stations. link .
Don't be Confuse by the numbers
When scanning for and adding channels; a stations original RF Channel number can remain the same if they are still
operating on their original frequency as mentioned above, in other cases a number may register temporarily in place of the
virtual or icon channel number or as a default figure on some units (possibly Digits on the progress bar), due to a weak
signal, interference or simply because you scanned during station maintenance when for what ever reason a replacement
channel number wasn't sent.
Don't let this confuse you if one of these things should happen, these are a rare occurrence where cause and effect
can vary between converter boxes, correct virtual channel numbers often reappear at a later time either on their own or
after channel and or a fresh overall new scan (after the tech fixed it etc..).
Pointing your antenna more direct toward the station during a scan to add channels,
can aid in getting it right the first time around.
At times a weak signal or interference could possibly play tricks on the TV reception and possibly numbers, the
signal could improve in days to come; especially if you happened to have scanned during extreme cloud
coverage or other severe weather conditions the first time around.
