I'm trying to find out info on an old over-the-air, multi channel "cable" tv system that was in place years ago in Saginaw County. I believe it was broadcast from the towers near the mall.
I think they used around the 2.4Ghz band. They used Pacific Monolithics antennas and down-converters.

Im looking for info on what freq they were on or the down-converter freqs.
Or does anyone know what company it was? I know a lot of people had them, but its been out of service for years, as I've been told.

Here are the antennas they used.

Was it I" It Selectvision" or "On TV"?

My parents had It TV and I think it went away around 1985. There was a box with an A/B switch ( your two movie channels) and a descrambler box which I think had a 4 digit scramble code that changed monthly and you had to turn the dials to the proper code.

But I was only about 8 at the time but that's what I remember.
