UHF TV Antennas

There is a lot of confusion in the market over what an HDTV antenna really is. In fact, many writers have accused antenna manufacturers and retailers of trying to mislead consumers in order to sell more antennas. The reality is that from an engineering perspective, there really is no such thing as an "HDTV Antenna."

Television signals are broadcast in two ranges: Ultra High Frequencies (UHF) and Very High Frequencies (VHF). TV antennas are typically designed to be responsive for one of these ranges although many antennas can actually capture some signals in both frequencies. Since more than 75% of all HDTV broadcasts are transmitted in UHF, it became common for consumers, retailers, and manufacturers to refer to UHF antennas as HDTV antennas. In reality, there are a number of stations that broadcast HDTV in VHF so an HDTV antenna could actually be either a VHF or UHF antenna.

Since most of our UHF antennas will capture high frequency VHF signals (Channels 7-13), we typically only recommend using VHF antennas to capture the low end of the VHF band (Channels 2-6). Occasionally, a VHF capable antenna may also be required on channels 7 and 8.  Please view our list of HDTV stations in your area. You will notice the VHF band channels in the Post DTV Channel column.
