Methodology to get the project moving-
- Determine what each station will need to do to
participate in this program. Repack Participation is mandatory for the 987 but for the LPTV crowd TIME IS OF THE ESSENSE!
- Complete an inventory of all equipment that will be
affected by this program.
- Identify the channel transition plan.
Based on the current info, most stations can identify when they are going, but how to get there is an issue.
- Determine what facility modifications may be
needed. If the transmitter facility can’t support ongoing operations during the build, additional space construction may be required. Need to know this info for planning purposes,
schedule and costs
- Which vendors will provide the new equipment and has
any attempts been made to get in line for equipment deliveries-key to schedule and budget?
- What service providers are required? Tower
structural analysis will be required. Engineering and Project management and Tower crews will need to be taken under contract. Power and emergency power modifications may need to be
planned for as well.
- Local zoning and permit requirements if needed.
These can take a very long time so early planning needs completed.
- Legal changes in the FCC license area and may be
needed with the FAA as tower heights are modified-up/down
- Disposition of old equipment-either to the junk heap
or to potential stations who could use it. This includes all the studio gear should the station elect to go dark. Obviously, group stations can shuffle around gear to fit their needs but
individual stations will need a plan.
