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 Replace transmitter and transmission line, using existing antenna. Acquire temporary antenna and line for continued operation during construction. Map and analyze tower; design and implement modifications if required. See attached
