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 KKAI installing new tower, transmitter, antenna, combiner at one DTS site, new transmitter, antenna, combiner at second DTS site. Both sites to be shared with at least one other station. A Memo of Understanding between the licensees is under preparation.
