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 Station KDFI is still working on its transition plan. However, the initial plan would be to install an interim facility to broadcast on the post-auction channel. Then replace the existing antenna and transmission line with new antenna and tx line.
