Re: Weather Related Radio/TV Problems

WERZ-Exeter, NH was off the air from 5:15 to 6:15 last night due to the
storms.  I don't know the exact reason for the outage, but I would suspect that
their TX site in Stratham lost power, and when I worked there the generator at
the TX was less than reliable.
