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 WXXI has transitioned to the new channel 22 on the newly installed auxiliary antenna. However, because of hoisting equipment failure and now non-availability of the necessary hoisting equipment, WXXI is not operating at full power or height.
