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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan WGBX will operate on Ch. 43 from an interim site for 10-12 mos. while extensive tower work is conducted and then resume operations on Ch. 32 at its original tower. After the transition, WGBX will retune its interim transmitter to replace its existing aux.
