Looks like the FCC doesn't buy the 6 dB difference for equal coverage. They 
concede, for example, only a slight reduction in coverage of Balt NBC11, whose 
ERP goes down 18 dB from analog to digital. And no coverage changes expected 
for the DC stations, which drop by 12 to 14 dB.
Lots of examples given of stations with different coverage.

It’s the same Hotmail®. If by “same” you mean up to 70% faster.
