The way I understand it there may be up to 7100 low-power, class A, and TV translator stations that are not required to switch over in February. So you may or may not need a converter. You can do a search at this website by zip code to locate these stations or look up the entire list in an excel spreadsheet here . I'm guessing that most TV is broadcast on translators outside Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. This is one area that the public education process is lacking. This is the FCC website that I did most of my research on http://www.dtv.gov/.
