I used to get W69AQ pretty good with a regular antenna even if it was going
a different way..

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.
