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 The WNET Four Times Square Auxiliary location with a shared (WABC) antenna will be modified by changing the filter and combiner module and placed on air. Similar work will then be done at WNET's One WTC facility which will then become the Primary location
