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 WSEC requires a new tower as two structural analyses confirmed it is required. A new antenna & xmtr will be purchased to replicate coverage. Final xmtr facility will be constructed with new tower & antenna. See attached Transition plan document.
