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. No
Briefly describe transition plan Current transmission system consists of a single transmitter feeding a rigid transmission line which connects to an antenna on the tower. Work includes tower study/rehabilitation to support new antenna, R&R antenna, line and transmitter.
