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 KKAI installing new tower, transmitter, antenna, combiner at one DTS site, new transmitter, antenna, combiner at second DTS site. One site to be shared with at least one other station; second site to be shared with five-plus stations. See attached.
