The HDTV signal does just fine with 20th Century antennas. Also, I'll correct an earlier statement I made that claimed only the UHF part is involved - I was incorrect. Both VHF and UHF reception is required. Digital simply uses far less bandwidth than analog broadcast & so the FCC was able to sell those new, clean frequencies between the channels at auction.
