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 Replace transmitter and antenna. Replace transmission line if sweep tests fail. Acquire interim antenna system during construction and duration of the assigned phase. Map and analyze tower; design and implement modifications or replace if required.
