This one is interesting.  WSMN has been promoting themselves lately as
Nashua's first station celebrating 40 years on the air.  Looks like WOTW
had them beat by a lot.  Maybe 'SMN means continually operating station
since WOTW was dark for a few years in the 80s.

Mt. Washington has an incredible signal today, even with all the congestion
on the band.  I wonder, though if they had any greater range...I doubt FM
receivers of that era were all that hot.
