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 Structural failed on existing tower. Move equipment to new location, new Ch 17 top mount antenna, with new transmission line in new tower. Use existing antenna, line and IOT transmitter to operate until channel transition.
