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 Relocate from current site (ESB) to 1WTC. Will be using the master antenna equipment at the new facility and installing new transmitters and RF systems to the master combiner. See attached Transition Plan Exhibit for more information.
