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 WDVB is not sharing facilities in the traditional sense; however, we have a CSA with WTBY (Facility ID 67993). Plan is to replace old transmitter (not retunable) and use modified antenna system
