    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.
