WXLX, right -- I had forgotten the calls it changed to after WSKQ.

That's a weird proposed pattern, though -- higher power at night? Must be a
more directional night pattern, though it would have to be very directional
to protect WIP. In fact, I'd be surprised if WIP didn't yap about it.

(And I can't imagine One-0n-One pulling any numbers at all in NYC with
booming WFAN 4 ticks away on the dial. Of course, they won't actually have
much in the way of salaries, I suspect.)
