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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan WSAZ will be replacing its main transmission line, antenna, and transmitter, its aux antenna. The station will be installing a broadband main antenna and broadband interim antenna to be shared with WQCW. The station will also be installing an interim XMTR
