Yes,  WSMN is directional east with a slight tilt to the northeast.  Their
signal now is a lot better than in previous years.  They had an old clunker
transmitter, and I hear that the FCC told them to get a new one, or at least
one that met specs.  They then ordered a Nautel, and signal has been great
ever since.   Is it true that their STL frequency is being used from the back
of their building to the 3 towers only 300 feet from the building? ---because
they didn't want to lay 300' of cable?
Also, WSMN could likely get an upgrade with the demise of 1590 in Gorham ME
(or shall I say, it's change to 870).
