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 Current transmission system consists of a main/aux transmitter feeding a transmission line connected to an antenna. An interim antenna and line will be needed as the main antenna must be removed and replaced. See attached narrative.
