I recall watching WJZB Channel 14 in it's last gasps in 
the mid-60's as well. It barely came in with an indoor
antenna in Newton, because the hill in West Newton 
blocked our reception to the west in Newtonville.

Weren't the very lowest channels in the UHF TV band, 
perhaps 14 through 16, re-allocated for two-way land
mobile radio use in some areas, including Boston, in
the 1970's? If WJZB had survived, wouldn't they have 
been forced to move up the dial?
