At that point in time, WCAP did the same thing to get the Sox feed.  If my
memory serves, the audio was not all that bad - better than a 5K out of
Switch 56!  (Which usually was at par with a dialup...)  Downside was lack
of the benefit of the raw network aux feed - ops had to actually be at the
pot to take out 'PLM' and always a 5K fun run from the 'comfort station'
around IDs and those wonderful pitching changes.  (Just had a memory moment
when I would hope for a rain delay when Ken Coleman and John Miller were the
team.)  Bill O'Neill
