services at a later date if the station finds the need for them. The costs of our services are 100% covered as part of the forced channel relocation. By budgeting the money now in the Sched-399 it
gives the station greater flexibility with their budget later on as the station progress through the transition.

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
Legal changes in the FCC license area and may be needed with the FAA as tower heights are
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.
