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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan KENS will be transitioning from channel 39 to channel 29. The KENS tower is shared with Sinclair. KENS is the bottom half of a 2 antenna stack. KENS has a licensed auxiliary & main transmitter that will need to be replaced as part of this repack.
