Opening Bids for the 2016 Reverse Auction have been announced by the FCC today.

"Broadcasters who opt to switch from UHF to a low VHF channel would receive between 20% and 33% less than a broadcaster that relinquishes its spectrum altogether, and broadcasters who switch from a U to a high V would receive 50%-67% less, an FCC official said."

Buffalo stations (ranked 52 DMA) can receive a maximum amount of $210 million for their channel frequency (median $170 million).

I can see PBS stations sharing channels across the U.S., and WNLO sharing with WIVB.  Which transmitter tower would they use:  Grand Island or Colden?
