WHDH-DT moves from RF-42 to 7

I MAY have an explanation for why lower power works for DTV on Channel
7 than what seems necessary to get stable DTV reception on UHF
channels. I note that even though the signal-strength indicator on my
TV says that the Channel 7 signal is not as stong as the UHF signals,
the Channel 7 signal strength does not seem to vary nearly as much. So
as long as the signal is strong enough for the receiver to lock in,
the signal appears less likely than the UHF signals to drop below the
lock threshold.
