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. No
Briefly describe transition plan WSST-TV is in Phase 1. It will lower its existing antenna to operate Channel 22 on an interim basis while Channel 34 is constructed. It then cut-over to Channel 34 when the phase construction is completed. See attached for details.
