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 Sweep line/antenna to asses performance on new channel, remove existing IOT main & backup transmitters & channel-specific indoor RF systems, replace w/solid-state transmitters and appropriate indoor RF systems, tune & optimize antenna/line on new channel
