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 The Licensee will utilize portions of the existing facility during the transition to the repacked channel. Please note that due to procurement delays, the NJPBA has revised our transition plan to include an interim facility. Details attached.
