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 WNYW will build an interim facility on CH 44 and transition to its final CH 27 at the One World Trade Center. The WNYW Aux site at West Orange NJ will require a new transmitter and combiner system.
