|Project Description||One-Two Sentences|
This project is mandated by the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Broadcast Incentive Auction and Post-Auction Transition. It involves the installation of broadcast transmission equipment and supporting systems at each of 11 UNC-TV locations in North Carolina, including the installation of two high power television transmitters, two antenna systems, transmission line, and other associated equipment. Existing utility power, backup diesel generator systems, and panel boards will need to be surveyed and plans developed to accommodate new transmitter products and their subsystems, yet to be specifically determined. Funding sources involve reimbursement from the FCC and non-reimbursable work which will require separate identification and accounting. Additional work, including the installation of Uninterruptable Power Supplies and new generator systems, may also be required. Completion of the transmitter re-channel project is required in the third quarter of 2019 in compliance with FCC requirements as spelled in their Post-Auction Transition program.
