Ultra-high frequency

Ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio signals are on frequencies between 328.6 MHz and 2.9 GHz[?], which is higher than those of very high frequency (VHF). UHF and VHF are the most common frequency bands for television.

On December 29, 1949 KC2XAK[?] of Bridgeport, Connecticut became the first UHF television station to operate on a regular daily schedule.

In Britain, UHF television began with the launch of BBC TWO in 1964. BBC ONE and ITV soon followed, and colour was introduced on UHF only in 1967 - 1969. Today all British terrestrial television channels (both analog and digital) are on UHF.


UHF[?] is a movie starring Weird Al Yankovic.
