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 Facility located at Sutro Tower has a main elliptically polarized ant and a broadband aux ant. Main antenna replacement requires replacment of structural steel. Post-transition transmitter will be pretuned to the post transition channel
