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 1.Install an interim antenna on channel 26 at our present licensed ERP or as close to it as we can obtain with our existing transmitter. 2.Purchase a replacement top mount antenna and line for the repack channel 33 with new mask filter and transmitter.
