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 WNMU must replace its main and auxiliary antenna and main and auxiliary transmitter in order to move it its new channel. See attached narrative for a more detailed explanation.
