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 The licensee will change its main and auxiliary transmitters and its antenna to operate on Channel 16, rather than Channel 48. The licensee also must replace its current STL (WPNJ942), which operates on Channel 46.
