Channel 83 was removed from television use in 1983. The highest frequency to have been used for NTSC-M terrestrial TV broadcasting, it was formerly used by a handful of television stations in North America which broadcast on 884-890 MHz. In the United States, channels 70-83 served primarily as a "translator band" for low-power repeater transmitters filling gaps in coverage for existing stations. Many are defunct, with the few still in existence now moved to lower frequencies:


  1. ^ (obsolete) Stations above channel 69
  2. ^ Current Station Roll Calls
  3. ^ Multiple Video Distribution System 150-1284 Hints and Tips, Radio Shack. Tandy's manufacturing facilities were divested in the early 1990s; the product is no longer manufactured.
