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 Replace current channel 41 TX with a new channel 28 TX. Encode ABC with WBBH and broadcast on the WBBH signal. Install temporary antenna. Remove old top mount antenna. Transition to new to new E pol to mount antenna when install completed..
