As you know, I bill myself as the Queen of France <g>.  While Ed Brouder
probably knows more about this than I do, my list of 1927 New Hamster
stations only lists WKAV (1340) in Laconia and WBRL in Tilton.  There were
also some amateur stations, of course.  I think WBRL, which was mainly doing
religious programming on a limited schedule in July of 1927, was at 1290,
but the call letters of WKNE were NOT assigned to Keene (or anywhere else--
I have the FRC  official station list...)
