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 Install interim channel 28 antenna, line, and transmitter before switchover date. At switchover date, begin operation on channel 28 interim system. Remove channel 38 equipment. Install full power channel 28 equipment and begin operations
