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 WDJT will operate from a interim transmitter and transmission line into the current antenna while the current transmitter is retuned from 46 to 29. A new sidemount antenna will replace the existing sidemount, The existing transmission will be reused.

Electrical Rooftop Patching

Rooftop patching was required to seal around conduit penetrations that were needed between the Primary transmitter and the heat exchangers.

Heat Exchanger Rooftop Perparations

The Primary transmitter heat exchangers were mounted on the rooftop, similar to the existing units. Rooftop equipment was removed to make room for the additional heat exchangers.

Rooftop Reinforcement

A steel grid was needed to support the heat exchangers on the rooftop of the transmitter building.
