The Commission released a Public Notice (DA 09-1253) last week
explaining how this is going to work.  In essence, they will allow
either "-DT" or "-TV" suffixes for post-transition facilities, and
will consider them equivalent.  However, stations wishing to use "-DT"
must still request it as a normal call sign change.  By default,
stations will keep their current call signs.

(Last time I looked, I never found any provision in the rules that
authorized "-DT".)
