I really don't think he has a price in mind, but I do believe that is
what he is hoping will happen.  As far as WCAP's value, I agree it is
worth much more than either WLLH or WCCM the only downside is is
nighttime pattern.  It disappears north north west.  Now if all you are
interested in is a signal toward Boston and don't care about Southern NH
then that would not be a problem.
