The WNNW towers are indeed HARD to find...they're in
a field behind a trailer park at the Salem, NH/
Pelham, NH border just off Rt 38. As I recall, they're
very short, about 130 feet and are less tall than some
surrounding trees. The FCC database says they
broadcast with four towers, but the last time I
checked, there were only two. Maybe if the
weather EVER clears, I'll go back and make sure...
on the prior occasion I viewed them was from the road
and my eyesight is much better now (an eye operation
last summer). One of my radios (and like a typical
radio geek, I have many more radios than is healthy)
has a vu-meter type signal strength meter. It
doesn't tell me the signal strength in mv/M, but
tells me comparative signal strength, and I know
WNNW is stronger in West Methuen now than it was when
it went on the air.
