RE: Station ID's (was wxlo uses..)

Having spent some very boring days up in Aroostook Co. with my family this
summer (hanging around the mall most of the time while my family did OTHER
things..) I thought WQHR's sattelite network was real stupid... I remember
one of the stations using "edmundston" in one of their IDs and Q96.1 had
"Northern Maine and New Brunswick's Hit Music Station" on it. I didnt like
it, I hate not having local programming.. incredibly boring. I had to listen
to Red Sox games up there since we didn't get FOX 25. I listened on WHOU and
they had "WHOU Houlton/Woodstock" as their ID.

They all do.  WCXU uses a 20 second ID, that id's WCXU, WCXX, and their
translator in Fort Kent, each with an American City
and the Canadian one across the border.  WHOU I'm pretty sure works
Woodstock in somehow.

The Exception is WQHR.  Thier Satellite network only allowed 2.5 seconds for
a station ID, so we only said "Presque Isle" for
that one, but included lots of Canadian towns and landmarks in the imaging.
