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 To keep our current channels on the air while we build our new assigned channels we will have to remove the old 65.5 foot UHF analog antenna replacing it with a 65.5 pole to have room for the new antennas for channel 16 & 36, since our tower is full.
