Ch.7 w/Reduced Power (In DTV Transition?)

I thought they found that DTV on the VHF band interfered with medical equipment (it happened with an early adopter in Dallas) and on channels 2-6 has very limited range. Is the VHF assigment that important in this day and age of virtual mapping?

I'm not sure what you are hoping won't happen, but channel 7 will
definitely be staying on 7.  See exhibit 4 to their most recent FCC
form 387 (BDTRCT-20080215AHT).  No other Boston station will be on
VHF, but WMUR-TV will be going back to 9 and WENH will be keeping 11;
WPRI-TV will be on 13.
