DTV Station Status per FCC CDBS - July 18, 2004
LICENSED (LIC): 536 (-0-)
CP Modification (CP MOD) 370 (+9)
STA (All variations) 1010 (+5)
STA (Modifications) 99 (-0-)
APPLICATIONS (minus rulemaking) 203 (-8)

Rulemaking - Digital channel changes
GRANTS 138 (-0-)

(Change from July 4, 2004 listing)

Note: The total will be greater than the number of DTV stations, as some stations have licenses, construction permits and applications on file. Subtracting the STA Modification number from the number in STA (All variations) will give a more accurate indication of the number of DTV stations operating under STA.

A spreadsheet showing all current DTV entries in the FCC CDBS TV engineering database files may be downloaded from www.xmtr.com/fcc/dtvdb.zip. All CDBS database files used for the spreadsheets carry a date of July 18 except for tv_eng_data.dat file which had a July 17 date even though the zip file it was in had a July 18 date. As it is unlikely there were any database changes Saturday this shouldn't be an issue. The entire TV engineering database (large file - over 2MB) extracted from the CDBS is available from www.xmtr.com/fcc/tvdb.zip. Note that I've removed the date from the zipped file names. This will make it easier to download or link to the database whenever needed. It will continue to be updated every two weeks. The format of the spreadsheet file name inside the archive won't change.
