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 The WFSB repack plan includes the replacement of main transmitter, addition of a transitional antenna, AUX transmitter and top mounted antenna. It also includes all the analysis, engineering planning,electrical systems and tower work .
