I am going to assume you have a Yagi antenna since you did not specify. There is a connection at the top of the antenna that sends the UHF and VHF down the wiring. This could be damaged. You also may need to repoint the antenna. www.antennaweb.org can assist with that matter. If you have another tv connected to the same antenna and it receives UHF then you may have a defective internal component on that particular set. Depending on your location an age of the set it may be cost prohibitive compared to purchasing a new set.
Hope that helps.

What does RF CH mean?


What is the difference between a RF channel and a virtual channel? The RF channel is the channel that the TV station uses to broadcast its signal. Before the conversion to digital, TV stations were normally identified by their channel number, and most people knew that a particular network was on a specific TV channel. While analog broadcasting was being phased out and all TV stations were converting to digital broadcasting, it was necessary for the TV stations to continue to broadcast their analog signals on their original RF channels, and also broadcast their digital signals on a different RF channel. However, since the TV station used their broadcast channel as part of their identification, they wanted to keep using the same channel number. To allow this to happen, the new digital television broadcasting standards (ATSC) provided TV stations the ability to continue to use their original channel number and also tell the TV set to tune to the new RF broadcast channel when their virtual channel number was selected. The original channel number is called the virtual channel number, and it will be followed by a period and a second number (3.1, 7.1, etc.).
One of the benefits of converting to digital for the TV stations is that they now have the ability to transmit more than one program at the same time on the same RF channel. The number of additional channels they can broadcast is determined by the resolution of the program (SD vs. HD, text only, music only, etc.). The second number in their virtual channel number indicates that one of the additional programming sources from the same TV station is being viewed (10.2, 10.3, 10.4, etc.).
When selecting an antenna, it is important to understand the difference between the RF broadcast channel and the virtual channel. Antennas are designed to receive specific ranges of RF channels, and the antenna needs to be selected for the RF channel you wish to receive. TV stations broadcast in two broad frequency ranges, called VHF and UHF. RF channels 2 through 13 are considered VHF, and RF channels 14 through 51 are considered UHF. In order to pick up the channels, the antenna has to be designed for the correct frequency range. It is very common today to find that TV stations using virtual channels 2 through 13 are actually using RF broadcast channels in the UHF range. Although not as common, some TV stations using virtual channels 14 through 51 are actually transmitting in the VHF range. An antenna designed for only UHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the VHF range, and an antenna designed for only VHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the UHF range.

How do i recieve uhf channels


If your television is fitted with a UHF tuner it should just be that you need to re-tune your set. This is often the case between seasons. If it is not fitted with one, then you need to buy and install a digital set top box to receive all stations, (Analogue, UHF and digital) in your area.

Sk-32h240s unable to get all local channels thru ant. only what whould be the formally vhf channels, not uhf.


UHF needs a UHF antenna most all channel antennas do not work good on UHF,
Try the set at a friends house that does get those channels. UHF is harder to get and that is why a UHF only antenna is needed by most people. Lots of antennas are junk do a search and you will find the 8 bay C/M is rated the best by a large margin.
A good antenna amp at the antenna is also needed it should be a low noise one. A search will show the ones that work best.
The Gov. as much as lied to us and the TV Stations the type of digital they forced on us is the wrong one and millions of people even with a great antenna have lost TV.

Local ABC and PBS stations do not come in. All others local stat


Check to make sure your DTV antenna is an "all band" antenna with reception in both the UHF and VHF bands. It sounds like you may be in Philadelphia area. In Philadelphia, all the DTV stations are in the UHF band except Ch 6 and Ch12, which are in the VHF band. Some of the DTV antennas are UHF only. You can tell if yours can receive VHF if it has the "rabbit ears" long wip antennas. If so make sure the whips are extended fully and turn the antenna to try to get a good signal.

Visit the 6ABC and WHYY websites for up to the minute information about the issues with reception issues.

Salutations tobusy2,

With the pending conversion to digital broadcasting on 2/17/2009; BestBuy™ stores are selling units with digital tuners as well as analog tuners. Standard analog tuners should still receive UHF and VHF stations, that is until the conversion when most of theses stations will stop broadcasting in UHF as well as VHF.

I hope this helps.

DTA800 do not receive UHF


I am not from that part of the country, so I can't say for sure, but check the following:

1) Are the UHF channels local and small stations? If so and under a certain power level, they are not required to broadcast in digital. THere may not be digital UHF channels local to you.

2) The changeover is required by law to occur by Feb 2009. Not all stations have made the change yet. You could still be in an area where the stations have not yet converted to digital broadcasts.

Make a few calls to find out which category yuo fall under above. If you don't fall into either of the above, update this and we'll look elsewhere for the problem.

Hi there!

Assuming that you tried to tune stations onto the UHF bandwidth and received nothing,Commonly the tuner box is probably at fault and needs replacement. The VHF and UHF signals are split inside the tuner so if you receive VHF fine then UHF should as well unless faulty of course. Some circuits require an external IC to do the switching, but more on the older models. Regards and good luck, JUS004

No uhf with antannae


UHF channels are basically "line of sight" type signals. You need to be pretty near those UHF stations.
You need a Uhf or combination Uhf/ Vhf antenna to receive them - - Usually an out-door type.
Your TV needs to be set in the "antenna" mode to tune beyond channel 13 "air type" channels. Channel 14 is the first UHF channel if you're in the antenna mode. If you're in the "Cable" mode then channel 14 is a cable channel which is operating at a different frequency from UHF.
I hope this will help you!
