UHF's Untold Stories

The History of UHF Television site was primarily created because there were some stories that needed to be told because they never had been, and there were other stories that needed to be properly told because the existing versions were riddled with inaccuracies such as the presumption of anecdotal information as correct.

We have therefore written those stories ourselves and present them for your reading here. Some of them originally appeared at Peter Q. George's former "UHF Morgue" website and have been corrected and expanded; most have been created from scratch. The one thing we will promise the reader is that Broadcasting has been used for the majority of fact-checking, with additional corrections coming from Television Digest (through 1963) and articles found in various newspaper archive sites. We are therefore confident that these articles are reasonably accurate (90% or better) as presented.

In this section, we have listed articles alphabetically by call letters; if you are looking for information on a station but cannot remember the call letters, we suggest consulting our "Channels" pages for listings by channel number; there are many stations on those lists which contain notes of what limited information is available (insufficient for a complete article).

If you have additional information on any of the above stations, please feel free to forward same to us via the Feedback form. We also welcome new articles on stations not yet included above.


The links below are to external sites devoted to the stations listed. We have no control over the content of those sites but based upon our own research believe them to be reasonably accurate:

And a few stations which aren't "failed" but whose histories are worth reading:

RCA's Broadcast News (archived at the American Radio History website) has many more station profiles from an equipment standpoint.
