When I worked at WAQY/WACKY 102 during those years, I went up to provin
Mountain one time with our Chief Engineer. We went to the closet... er,
room that the WAQY transmitter was in. There was a box about the size of
a small refrigerator in the room. I asked what it was... the answer...
the Channel 69 TX! I was told they used it for carrying Bruins and Red
Sox games that they didn't wanna carry on the big 22 signal. I don't
believe it was well known to have existed: I don't recall TV listings
for it or anything.
