Oh yes, part of WGNN's first marketing push was educating the public what those channel numbers above 13 required. In the late 1970s, the only UHF station in the market was the UNC-TV network's WUNL 26, and channel 4 from Chapel Hill still put out such a massive signal that we didn't even bother with WUNL.

Our house didn't bother with a splitter least at first. Our first UHF antenna was a bent metal coat hanger.
