Broadcaster Information and Transition Plan

Back to Top
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 Replace transmitter, antenna and transmission line. Acquire interim antenna and line for continued operation during construction and duration of the assigned phase. Map and analyze tower; design and implement modifications if required.
