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 Strengthen existing single tower. Mount temporary side-mount Ch 44 digital antenna and feedline to tower. Remove existing Ch 44 top mount antenna and replace with Ch 27 top mount. Prewire and plumb new Ch 27 transmitter and cut over to new Ch 27 ops.
