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 Replace IOT Transmitter and associated equipment. AUX antenna and transmission line, add combiner for WTEN. Replace main transmission line to combiner, combiner and shared transmission line to antenna. Add AC and electric to transmitter room.
