In my area, the TV station that broadcasts on channel 7 (174-180 MHz) in
analog is also broadcasting a digital signal on channel 42 (638-644
MHz). Next February the analog VHF channel will stop broadcasting
altogether, and the digital broadcast on channel 42 will continue. That
frees up the VHF bandwidth to be auctioned, which is one of the driving
reasons behind the whole analog -> digital conversion in the first
