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 Facility has dual broadband antennas and combiners. One transmitter and combiner will be pretuned to the post-transition channel and enabled at the appropriate time. The other transmitter and combiner will then be retuned.
