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 Install interim antenna/transmission line. Broadcast on interim antenna while tower structural work is completed. Install new (upgrade) Solid State Transmitter. Go on air with new Transmitter and main antenna during testing window.
