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 broadband antenna and combiner for KTVT (CH19) & KTXA (CH29). Tx line must be replaced to accomodate repack (CH18) & (CH19), so Interim site will be built for KTVT (CH19) and KTXA (CH29). Once done, KTVT will return to Main (CH19), KTXA wil
