Question Response
Will the station be sharing equipment with another broadcast television station or stations (e.g., a shared antenna, co-location on a tower, use of the same transmitter room, multiple transmitters feeding a combiner, etc.)? If yes, enter the facility ID's of the other stations and click 'prefill' to download those stations' licensing information. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan Reduce TPO to 50% and remove 1/2 of the xmitter system. Install new SS xmitter system. Add AUX antenna & line to the tower & feed it with a reduced signal from the current xmitter. Remove & replace antenna. Test.
