That makes sense. Channel 7 may be running a lower-than-normal aural carrier 
level due to that situation, or may have been before  the digital changeover.

Adjacent channels would never be assigned to the same market, and I think the 
same is true of digital stations as well.

The makers would have to put decent front ends into their TV sets if this rule 
went away.
