Back to Top
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 We will reuse a channel 24 transmitter that will be re-tuned to channel 19 by the manufacturer and will be moved to the WLHG transmitter location. A new antenna, mask filter, and transmission line will need to be purchased.
