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 WFMJ is transitioning from channel 20 to channel 33. The existing Axcera transmitter is not retunable or supported and will be replaced along with the main antenna. An interim antenna will be used during replacement of the main antenna to stay on air.
