Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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.

Channel 19 actually broadcasts on VHF channel 11 (approximately 201MHZ) and channel 25 actually broadcasts on UHF channel 15 (approximately 479MHZ). I know that sounds a bit weird but it has been done so that stations don't have to change there "call" channel number when we switched to Digital TV. Your digital converter box keeps track of this. This is important to understand because you need and antenna that is good at picking up both UHF and VHF signals. If you're not getting channel 19 it may be due to a poor VHF portion of your antenna. If your using a basic old set of rabbit ears for your antenna that has a loop in the middle then I might have a trick for you. Most rabbit ears have 2 telescopic antenna elements. Extend or collapse until each length is 14.7 inches long. (Which is a quarter wavelength at 201MHZ). You are effectively tuning (Optimizing) your antenna specifically for that channel 19. You may need to rotate your antenna a bit to find the best signal.
There are other factors which can hinder you receiving channel 19 but this is a good starting point. Let me know what type of antenna you have. Hope this helps.
