    So we can calculate how little bandwidth is left?

    Yes, of course.

    Add the DTV stations to the Next Gen stations and subtract that from 35 to see how many channels are left. In the LaLa Land market, that's not very many.

    Speaking of LaLa Land, I'm still puzzled how KUHD out of Camarillo can be moving to channel 44.

    The station had an STA for 30 and has a (very old) pending license to cover for 44. Even after the pending license went on file, I'd still received a report that it was on 30, several years ago.

    I suspect the station hasn't operated in a very long time. I don't have any better information to update it with at this time.

    Outside of Phoenix and the markets that simply must be first (or those that question whether ATSC 3.0 is the answer to everyone's coverage problems), what would be the point? If we can't get our hands on an affordable tuner, I see no reason to make any bold moves.

    Let Sinclair spend the money to figure out what works and what doesn't.
