So much VHF!

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)
