But it would also drastically cut income for the operators of the Mt.
Washington Observatory.  Don't forget that there's a full-time staff
up there, part of whose job is to maintain the transmitters on the
mountain.  Without their cash cow--WMTW--as a tenant, they would have
to recover their fixed costs elsewhere--if they could.

Take care,
