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 Transition from ch 46 to ch 17 and will need an antenna, transmitter and associated gear and systems. The station will need an interim transmitter and antenna system to provide continuous service during the transition.
