I don't have any direct knowledge, just what I've read on my local HDTV forum, such as:

"Seems that KTTV 11.1 FOX from LA is only broadcasting at ERP 15Kw. They have an application with the FCC to boost to 115Kw"


"KCET is co-channel with XHJK-TV on channel 28, with ERP of 155KW. They have a pending application to maximize power at 1000kw.

There are other stations with pending applications to maximize (KABC 7 ERP now 25kw, want 28.7kw, KTTV11 15kw/115Kw). KCOP 13 is approved for 120kw but their post transition facility was 13.4kw.  I'm guessing those changes if approved should take some weeks to complete. I remember reading about traffic restrictions on Mount Wilson."
