TFA: For those of you born after the days of rabbit ears, UHF stands for ultra high frequency and refers to channels above 13. A UHF signal was not as strong as a VHF signal. VHF stands for very high frequency and refers to channels 2 through 13. Why "ultra" was weaker than "very" when it seems that it should have been the other way around will just have to remain a mystery.

Farking electromagnetic waves, how do they work?

Or to stick with the theme of this thread,

This is my new mop. George, my friend, he gave me this mop. This is a pretty good mop. It's not as good as my first mop. I miss my first mop, but this is still a good mop. Sometimes you just hafta take what life gives ya, 'cause life is like a mop and sometimes life gets full of dirt and crud and bugs and hairballs and stuff... you, you, you gotta clean it out. You, you, you gotta put it in here and rinse it off and start all over again and, and sometimes, sometimes life sticks to the floor so bad you know a mop, a mop, it's not good enough, it's not good enough. You, you gotta get down there, like, with a toothbrush, you know, and you gotta, you gotta really scrub 'cause you gotta get it off. You gotta really try to get it off. But if that doesn't work, that doesn't work, you can't give up. You gotta, you gotta stand right up. You, you gotta run to a window and say, "Hey! These floors are dirty as hell, and I'm not gonna take it any more!"

Rabbit ears were used for VHF, goddammit!  The circular face was for UHF!  And prior to the widespread use of the remote control the more distinguishable trait of UHF was getting off your ass and walking up to the television to rifle through stations by manually turning a knob that clicked for every station.  And if you did it too fast or sat too close to the TV you were yelled at by parents with little scientific data to cite reasons for moving away from the TV.

In Boston you had to manually flip 13 stations as fast as possible to go from 25 to 38, and another 18 stations to 56.  Unless you were some PBS dweeb and stopped on 44 to watch Romper Room for the second time that day after you saw it on channel 2.  Pff.  Losers.

That information means about as much to the author as a festering bowl of dog snot.

If you took these reporters' combined IQ and multiplied it by a hundred, you might have enough intelligence to tie your shoe, if you didn't drool all over yourself first.
