Some sample FCC Regulatory Fees:
WABC - $2,000.
WBZ  -  $2,000.
WADN -  $1,400 I think
WJTO - $1,400  
WNEB - $1,000.
all of this based on each station's 0.5 mv.m coverage area; a worthless figure
since a station must have about a 7.0 signal in order to combat all the new
electric noice (cell phones, etc) now with us.    They chargeth us but don't
protect us.
