HD/SD question

Bear with me for a moment here...

I currently have D* SD service with HD locals OTA (no LOS to 119 for SD locals).

I am having an HD upgrade on Friday where I will get my locals in HD from 99.

What will I need to watch my locals when they are not broadcast in HD? Will the 99 sat still broadcast the stream as my OTA would pick up or will I need to switch back and forth? Will my 99 HD locals be dark when my local stations are not broadcasting HD?

Does this question make sense?

I see what you are saying.

You will still be able to watch your local HD channel if they are broadcasting an SD show. It will just have pillar bars. :)
They won't ever move your HD locals to 119 I don't believe. So you should be good. I bet eventually your SD locals will be moved off the 119 anyway.
