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 The station will go off air. The present antenna will be replaced with a new antenna. The old xmtr will be replaced with a new one. Existing transmission line will be swept and used if determined to be good. No tower mods expected.
