Re: 87.7 FM in Portland,ME & WCSH NEWS

The audio section of any TV channel 6 is located at 87.7 MHz. It's not a
separate broadcast facility, it's just the audio portion of the TV
station's signal you're hearing. I can listen to Philadelphia's WPVI-TV 6
throughout much of southeastern PA - the monaural FM signal suffers from
little interference from other stations.
