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 Pre-install the replacement transmitter, Mask Filter, and test/proof system into a dummy load. During Replacement of the antenna and elbow complex the transmitter will be cut over to the new antenna. See uploaded attachment for thorough description.
