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. No
Briefly describe transition plan Use existing transmitter and antenna as interim during transition. Install new antenna in place of old analog antenna with new transmitter for new channel. Remove old transmitter and antenna after transition to new channel.
