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 The FCC allocated us two frequencies that aren't adjacent to each other (16 & 32). This combination will require 4 antennas and 4 feedlines. The existing tower will not support that much weight. We request to construct a new tower with a "T" top design.
