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 DTV Utah is a complex site with 8 stations sharing a two main antennas as well as aux antenna, combiner system and building. Replacement antenna panels, combiner and transmitters will be required. DTVU is still working on its transition plans.
