        Scott Fybush has been following the story of putting up new
tower(s) on that ridge and maybe can update better. I think the current
situation is that WTNH and WBNE and WTNH-DT are on a new tower that WTNH
put on the air about a year ago--built to accommodate DT. I know that WPLR
switched to a new antenna in the last year or two, also, that improved its
signal a bit up in the Hartford area, but I don't know if that's another
new tower up there or whether it's on the new TV tower. WKCI for some
reason cannot go on the new WTNH tower and is having one of those local
zoning hassles in Hamden over getting authorization to build its own new
tower a few yards away. Why are they being hassled, you might well ask.
Well, who knows. One of the things I don't know is why the old WTNH tower
isn't continuing to be available to WKCI, either by lease or by sale. IIRC,
the WKCI C.P. is for somewhat more height with lower power.
