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 WMAR will replace its existing Ch. 38 main and auxiliary antennas (which are channel specific) with new Ch. 27 antennas and replace its existing main and auxiliary Ch. 38 transmitters (which cannot be retuned) with new Ch. 27 transmitters.
