So much VHF!

You can use the handy guide from RabbitEars.info

And look at the results from the FCC as well.

If they're licensed as LPTVs they aren't protected. If they would interfere with any full-power or Class A station, they must move to new channels or go dark. In many markets, new channels may not be available. If they *wouldn't* interfere and they're below channel 37, they can stay put.

If they're licensed as Class A stations, they are guaranteed new channels. (unless they chose to sell their channels in the auction)
