-----, depend on it! (was Re: 94.3 Peterboro/Pack Monadnock Mtn Translator)

     No doubt this translator has just upped the ante
in terms of power. It is NO 5 watt signal, NO WAY! 
Even, WFEX (92.1) from the same transmitter site has a
lot more power but still barely makes a signal to
where I was.  I was driving on Route 1 last night
between Danvers and Rowley, MA (70 miles from
Peterborough, NH) and was able to pick this 94.3
signal at various locations on that 20 mile stretch of
road.  It is no doubt running power in excess of its'
authorization.  Also, I find it very improbable that
this station is within of the 1 m/v. contour of the
primary station, WHAZ in Albany, NY.  Also, this is
NOT an non-commercial educational translator.  It is a
commercially licensed translator, rebroadcasting
another commercial station.  It all seems to be very
similar in scope of a Westfield, MA translator on 92.1
that magically found it's way onto Mt. Tom in Holyoke,
without a modification of any CP. Who would have the
gall to do such a thing?  I'll give you one good
guess....... :)!
