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 WTXF will change channel of its licensed Aux facilities with new antenna, transmission line and transmitter. It will operate on its new channel from Aux facilities while the main site main antenna, aux antenna, tx line, and transmitters are changed.
