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 WCBI-TV plans to replace its existing antenna and transmitter with new ones that will accommodate its new channel. In the interim, it will connect its existing transmitter to a new interim antenna. The interim antenna will be reused for other stations.
