With the analogue transmitters switching off, how can I provide RF signal to the antenna input on vintage sets, especially in the VHF range?

What are collectors using now as program source for vintage sets?

You need a digital black box feeding an RF modulator with an output on a VHF channel, usually Ch 0 or Ch 1.

Jaycar sell this modulator which should do the trick. If your telly takes 300Ω ribbon cable instead of 75Ω coaxial cable then you will also need a balun, also available at Jaycar.
