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 WHKY-TV is a 2-site DTS system. The DTS1 facility will operate with an interim channel 40 antenna during its transition at it's studio tower. The DTS2 facility operate with the current antenna using a new transmission line during its transition.
