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 To maintain operations, we will need to replace the 2 backup TXs and re-tune the main TX. The channel combiner needs to add channel 35. The aux tower will need to be brought up to G standard and the aux antenna changed for a broadband antenna.
