Note: The total will be greater than the number of DTV stations as some stations have both 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 dated August 29, 2003 is available from www.xmtr.com/fcc/dt030912.zip. The entire TV engineering database extracted from the CDBS is available from a link on my Web site at www.transmitter.com
