RE: Application for Modification of 93.3 in Andover, MA

Acutally, the idea of a TX at 93.3 is good, the placement is what's wrong!
WBOS is nulled by WXRV (92.5) in the immeadiate Haverhill area (I notice
when driving on Rtes 97-113). If GM could put a 5 watt TX in HAVERHILL, that
would make the most sense.
