The FCC put together pdf files of coverage maps, sorted alpha by city. There are two files, the first shows the change in coverage from analog to digital (except for the 69 digital stations with no analog counterpart). The second file shows by city, which stations had the biggest changes in coverage -- some better, some worse. It was nice to see these, so I'm passing it on.



There's also a report explaining their methodology, up near the top of either page. The bottom line conclusion of the report:

The vast majority of TV stations throughout the country will experience a significant increase in the population that can receive their signals. Some stations, however, are expected to experience some losses in the population that will be served by digital service as compared to their existing analog service. In most instances the losses result from a broadcaster's choice to modify its service area, often to reach more overall viewers or better conform to its local market.
