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 Station will share a common transmitter room with FacID - 183829. Significant cost savings on this project will come from continuing use of existing major components such as existing Broadcast Antenna and RF Transmission Line.
