I remember when they eliminated channels 70 to 83 and gave them over to
the cell phone companies.  the funny thing is that there are still some
analog-tuned (manually tuned) tv sets manufactured that go up to 83.

Why is the FCC doing away with THESE channels now?  Aren't there TV
stations there?  I know here in the NYC area we have 3 analog TV stations
in that band:

Channel 53, Channel 60, Channel 67 (in Long Island), Channel 68

I think Boston also has some channels down there, no?
