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 WLTX must replace its primary antenna, transmission line and transmitter as a result of the repack. An interim facility must be built in order to operate station during the repack build-out and throughout the station's assigned phase.
