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 KDAO-CD will change channel from 44 to 17 using the existing site. A change in the antenna will be required. The existing transmitter will be retuned. KDAO-CD does not share equipment with other stations.
