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 This application is to convert Channel 50 to Channel 19. We will use the existing antenna and retune the transmitter and filter. The change that was assigned to us by the FCC resulted in a loss of population and coverage area. See attached explanation.
