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 WCPO must replace its main antenna and transmitter in order to move its new channel. It will need to install interim facilities in order to be able to replace the main facility. See attached narrative for a more detailed explanation.
