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 Purchase of a new transmitter, new transmission line, and new antenna. Current transmitter cannot be retuned to the new channel. Interim antenna and interim transmission line are planned during transition to main antenna.
