Television has become part of our daily lives. This electronic wonderment has provided the masses with a new means of communication. It can serve many fields and phases of life; science, industry, education, and the entertainment world. They can channel their message to the public through this media. Television because of its complexity presents many serious problems of interest. Since television serves as a dominant social force, and because it is so young, there are many problems involved in its growth. I am of the opinion that at least one of theses many problems is worthy of some discussion, and solution as well. My study has to do with what I term, "Criteria For Successful Ultra High Frequency Operation." This UHF problem has reached serious proportions. Congress recently stepped in and is about to investigate the problem. Some forty UHF stations have turned back their applications before they even went on the air. UHF stations all over the country are finding many hardships and disappointments they didn't bargain for at the outset. As a result of research on successful UHF operations on the air, I have arrived at what I consider a proposed plan to insure a successful UHF endeavor. The study also contains a research report of a successful UHF operation. This station has followed and observed the criteria which, as a result of this study, I have found necessary for successful UHF operation. Perhaps this work, because of its detailed accounts, can clarify the UHF situation to a greater extent. If it does nothing more than ascertain that there is a UHF problem in television, then the study will not have been in vain.
