I happened to be watching Channel 7 news right after the digital
switchover, when they announced that they were having problems with
their signal.  At the time, they had switched from channel 42 back to
the old analog frequency of channel 7, as it had been planned for them
to do so.  Now, if you look at the frequency they are using, its channel
42.  It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to assume why they are broadcasting
back on channel 42....
