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 There has been a change in plan due to the COVID-19 virus. The tower crews have shut down and will not have time to do major mods to main tower. WDEF-TV will have to install a interim site on its small tower to be on air by 07/03/2020.
