I debated with myself whether to spoil the fun. I think everyone on this
list knows that WBZ was on 990 until NARBA (3/29/41). However, here's one I
can't answer but maybe you can, Scott--when did WBZ move TO 990?

BTW, contrary to an earlier post of mine, WBZ's towers are more than 1/4
wavelength apart at 1030; they are 1/4 wavelength apart at 990. This puts
the lie to my theory that, when the Hull facility was constructed,
Westinghouse knew the frequency to which NARBA would move the station.
