Here in Brookline, I've put old antennas on my converter boxes.  Of 
course, I have cable, so I don't use the off-air boxes very much, but 
with the coupon, they were cheap enough, so I bought them.  On my 
bedroom TV, I have an old UHF-VHF rabbit ears, with a UHF ring 
antenna and two wire connectors, one of which is labelled UHF.  I 
connected that one initially because all the DTV stations were on 
UHF.  It worked fine.  Friday night after midnight I re-scanned and 
found that, even on a UHF antenna, channel 7 comes in fine.

I haven't re-scanned the other box yet.  I set that up on the 
diningroom TV, but I haven't used it since.  When I scanned it, I 
couldn't get channel 4.  I'm planning to connect it to my small 2-
inch TV in my study, which isn't connected to the cable.
