Broadcaster Information and Transition Plan

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 install backup transmitter and auxiliary antenna which will continue to broadcast on Ch 21. WBOC's main transmitter will be modified to broadcast on digital Ch 32. The main Ch 21 digital antenna will be removed and a new Ch 32 antenna installed.
