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 Install antenna for new channel on new tower while using existing main antenna on pre-auction channel with auxiliary transmitter. Replace mask filter and retune existing main transmitter for new channel. Modify aux for use on new channel after cut-over.
