<< QDY has changed format over the years.  I've followed them since 1985, and
they have been solid AC/CHR some summers and country the next.  I'd agree
about the current format... they are trying to please everyone... but I bet
they are pretty solid CHR at night.
 Regarding WHRR... well, I don't get it.  That area of Maine is severely
depressed, and I'm not sure if the area could support another signal.  Also,
wouldn't a considerable amount of signal go out over the ocean, Bay of Fundy,
etc.?  From my scan of the area, I'd say you broadcasting to a lot of rock,
water, and trees... none of them provide revenue.

You are correct about WQDY at night, they are solid CHR, when not running the
Sox.  They even have a jock with a CHR style that sounds totally different
than the rest of the guys on the station.

As for WHRR, I agree entirely.  There are only 35,000 people in Washington
County and the area is very poor.  WQDY gets some advertisers out of St.
Stephens and I suspect that getting into New Brunswick is part of the plan
for WHRR, but there are not a lot of people right across the border.  The big
signal might get them into St. John, but I don't the station would make much
impact there.

Does anyone know who the owners of the station are or what they plan to do
with the station?  The only thing I can think of is religion.  (Ugh)
