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 To transition from ch 7 to ch 8. Analysis has indicated that the antenna will work but the lines will require modification. A new transmitter will be needed. A new interim transmission system is needed to provide service during the transition.
