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 WYTV plans to replace its existing aux transmitter and antenna as well as its main antenna and transmitter with equipment for use on its new repack channel. No Interim facilities will be required since we are able to use the aux facility.
