Relatively few broadcasters are even aware of the all UHF markets existence.
The largest of these UHF only areas is in California's Southern San Joaquin
Valley, sandwiched between Los Angeles and San Francisco/Sacramento. It
encompasses the Fresno and Bakersfield markets, which were established in
the mid 1960s, IIRC. Fifteen or more full powered UHF stations are currently
operating in that area.

The UHF only era ended there with the advent of DTV, several station are
currently assigned and operating high band VHF DTV channels.
