As previously posted, I did put up my VHF attic antenna over this past weekend at my mid Sarasota County home. I just remoted into my HDHR and see that UHF channel 50 has a signal strength of 95% and signal quality at 91%. As compared with VHF channel 9, the signal strength is the same but the signal quality on channel 9 is at 81%. Both still extremely acceptable.
I would guess that they're in test mode because once they make the switch I would expect an announcement, at least on their web site, and on their broadcastf for those who receive WINK OTA.
