Yup. The spacing restrictions for DTV-to-DTV and DTV-to-analog are 
considerably less restrictive than for analog-to-analog, and that opens up 
a number of move-in possibilities around the country. A number of 
Philadelphia TV rimshotters managed to put their DTV signals at the 
Roxborough tower farm even though their analogs are way out in the 
hinterlands; WJAL-68 Hagerstown MD, with analog tx north of Hagerstown in 
PENNSYLVANIA, plans to put its DTV in Washington DC. There are others, too.
