Not quite. In the Washington DMA for the full power stations, you left out WPXW-DT Ion 66, WWPX-DT Ion 60 (12) out in Martinsburg, WNVT-DT 30, WNVC-DT 56 (silent), and I would guess WJAL 68 in the Hagerstown market if WJAL-DT has ever fired up the interim digital UHF 16 signal.
With the countdown clock to September 8 on the Ion stations, I emailed Ion about whether that meant to a HD broadcast. Unlike other networks, Ion actually responds to emails, but the answer was that they are still in the process of launching the HD network, but can't provide an official date. So don't hold your breath for Ion HD.
