What's the difference between a low power station with a W##xx disgnation where ## is Channel#, and Wxxx-LP?.
Are W##xx translator only stations, where they can NOT have independent programing, much like W40BO is a translater for WPXB?
Where as Wxxx-LP are fully 'independent' stations?
Also,besides -TV, -DT, -LP and -CA,are there any other clasification of TV stations....and if a station had ONLY a digital station where the Calls were NOT assigned to either an Analog TV, or Radio station, must they use the -DT suffix anyway, or like FM stations with unique calls, can the go (DT) instead?
Thnaks for any answers.

That means that the station in question is a ``class A'' television
station. Such stations are subject to the same rules as LPTVs, except
that they are protected from being ``bumped'' by full-power stations
under certain circumstances. To be eligible, such stations supposedly
must offer a certain number of hours of local programming and have a
studio in the community they serve. (There is some suggestion that
applicants have not been entirely honest in applying for this
