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 Use existing transmitter and aux antenna as interim facility on old channel.. Remove old antenna. Install new transmitter and replacement top mount antenna for new channel. After transition remove old transmitter and channel 48 aux antenna.
