Broadcaster Information and Transition Plan

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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan KTVD will be moving to channel 31 from channel 19. It plans to repurpose the current broadband antenna and transmission line. It requires a new combiner port and a new transmitter. It would cost more to re-tune the existing TX than to purchase a new.
