If I'm not mistaken, the microwave links to the satellite stations
originate at WEVO's transmitter site...if the first link in the chain
breaks, no one gets any audio.  The Keene signal must go thru several hops
to get there, I presume the others do, too...their studios on N. Main St.
don't give a clear shot to much other than the Hopkinton site.
