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 The plan is for WPBT is to replace the existing channel 18 system with a new channel 29 antenna system, transmission line and transmitters. All of the equipment will be owned and operated by SFPBS. See attached narrative.
