TV Query Broadcast Station Search

Search for broadcast television station information in the VHF and UHF broadcast bands.  You may request one-line-per-record list output, or more detailed "query" output.  The data files used for this query are updated each morning.  Please refer any comments or suggestions on the TV Query to Hossein Hashemzadeh,

Selection of a TEXT output option allows the user to generate a formatted output table which can be imported into other programs. Text tables do not contain all CDBS data fields, but include the values most commonly sought by users. Save the screen output as a text (.txt) file.
