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 Purchase of the transmitter, antenna system and transmission line. Current transmitter manufacturer does not support the re-tune to the new channel. Broadcasting of interim (CH15) antenna, while main antenna/combiner is prepared for CH15 operation.
