Incredible as it may seem, WJUL/WUML always held up well on
rt 28 as I drove RIGHT PAST the campus of Phillips Academy;
the WPAA transmitter is set back an eighth-of-a-mile from Main
Street, just off Salem St beyond the red brick obelisk.
You had to go to the complex of buildings  that houses the
transmitter and the single-bay antenna THEN WPAA would squelch
91.5 from Lowell.  Their website claimes 33 or so watts
ERP;  I believe from the uninterrupted months-long operation,
the power might have been below even 10 watts.
