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 WFTV's plan for the digital replacement translator is to replace the current antenna with a broader band antenna that will cover channels 19 & 20. Once the antenna is in place, we will need to replace the digital mask filter, retune the exciter.
