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 To transition from CH 18 to CH 33 KRMA must replace its main antenna, transmission line, RF switching, main and backup transmitters. An interim antenna on the new channel will be used during replacement of the main antenna.
