  Television Technology
At a television station, the electronic signal from a television camera can be combined and/or mixed with video signals from other devices such as video tape players, computers, film chains or telecines (motion picture and slide projector units whose outputs have been converted to video signals) using what is known as a switcher.
In this case the television signal is transmitted to the satellite on a specific frequency and then retransmitted at a different frequency by the satellite's transmitter back to the earth.
A television receiver picks up the transmitted television signals sent over-the-air or by cable or satellite, removes the necessary video and audio signals that had been piggy-backed on the carrier wave, discards the carrier wave, and amplifies and converts the video and audio signals into picture and sound.

 The Lost Channels
Channel 1 TV stations were not being built anywhere because, among other things, assignees had to wait for the old FM broadcast band radio stations to relocate into their present band of 88-108Mhz.
The next year (1948) channel 1 was dropped by the FCC, but because a large number of channel 2 stations (and other channels) were already on-air, it decided not to renumber the system (and rewrite the entire book of TV regulations).
Riverside's channel 1 at least in theory could have been reassigned to channel 12, but with the large number of VHF stations powering up nationwide in 1948, it became painfully obvious that these original allocations were all too closely spaced and unexpected interference was coming up everywhere.
