Yes some channels will use VHF Hi Band 7-13, including A-channel from Barrie. BTW CBLT still broadcasts in Analog in Ch 5 but CBLT-DT broadcast the HD digital version on channel 20 labeled as channel 5.1.
I have looked into this for my Los Angeles area market, and UHF plus hi-band VHF are needed. I have seen this when checking several other markets, too. I have found that stations that used to be on frequencies 7 - 13 have gone back or will go back to those frequencies.
My favorite is the Channel Master 2016. It's not too expensive. It's small, as it's basically a UHF antenna with one pair of added elements for 7 - 13.

Yeah, I really think it was a mistake to not completely abandon VHF. UHF antennas are so much easier for the population to deal with.
Bingo. It's the stupidest thing since wet bread.

you can use the digital rf modulator to slove this problem
please tell us the brand and model of what you are talking about. Present affordable modulators with digital signals do not use the same kind of modulation as over-the-air (OTA) stations, so most TVs cannot tune them in when set to tune in OTA stations.
