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 Operate from current auxiliary antenna and transmitter while primary antenna is replaced and the transmitter is re-tuned for post repack channel. Once operational on main system, replace auxiliary antenna and re-tune transmitter to post repack channel.
