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 Purchase new transmitter, antenna and transmission line. Lease interim side-mount ch 38 antenna, use existing line to maintain service while top-mount is removed and new antenna, transmitter and line installed. See attached Transition Plan.
