Broadcaster Information and Transition Plan

Back to Top
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 Interim post-transition transmitter will be commissioned at an interim site in advance of the Phase Completion Date. Following the transition, the existing main transmitter at the primary site will be removed and a new transmitter will be installed.
