TVTechnology: New Slots for Channel 51 Stations?

TVTechnology: New Slots for Channel 51 Stations?

Trip Ericson has alerted me to some interesting activity in the FCC’s Consolidated Database System. It appears the commission may have already started reserving displacement channels for relocation of full-power TV and Class A TV stations now operating on channel 51. Trip has posted a WTB Channel 51 Relocations list on RabbitEars.info.

There are a total of 17 Channel 51 operations on the list, and eight of them have been reassigned to Channel 14. Trip noticed that one of these stations, WPWR-TVin Gary, Ind., got Channel 14, even though Channel 14 is reserved for land-mobile use in Chicago under FCC Section 73.623(e). In the Los Angeles area, KXLA, which is licensed to Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., was assigned to Channel 50. Trip pointed out that this is the same channel number that’s licensed to Class A TV station KNLA-CD.
