Fwd: Re: I Just Got Back From Ferry Street in Salisbury, MA

When the tower was built, WNBP was operating at 1470 khz.  The drop to
1450 increased its wavelength perhaps by 40-feet so a quarter of that 
might require a boost of 10 feet (no big deal, but radio geeks OWN the
verb "to quibble".

The new tower is the same height because THAT is the 1/4 wavelength height
for 1450.
