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 Replace transmitter and share new antenna and new transmission line with KODE. Acquire new interim antenna and new line for continued operation during construction and duration of assigned phase. Map and analyze tower; design and implement modifications.
