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. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan WJET & WFXP are co-located. The initial 399 requested to share the same antenna and line; however, the azimuth patterns are directional and significantly different. Accordingly, both facilities are filing amendments to budget and operate independently.
