Thanks for that information.

I'm curious about something.  Why must WBZ only use 10,000 watts from the 
auxiliary transmitter?  Being a clear-channel station, I would think it 
would be licensed to use full power, even from its auxiliary transmitter.  
I realize that the main transmitter uses a pattern that nulls to the east, 
but that's just the Atlantic Ocean.  Or are there European signals on that 
frequency that WBZ has to protect?
