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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan KTVU will continue to use the existing master UHF Main and Upper Aux antennas at Sutro Tower. New Combiners for both antennas are required. Main TX will be retuned. Aux transmitter replaced. Sutro tower modifications are required.
