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 WJYS located at Willis Tower on east tower combined antenna system. WJYS shares transmitter room with WEDE-CD. Transition requires change in transmitter, mask filter, transmission line to combiner, and combiner module.
