  I'm surprised they don't use their Marti transmitter for the Lock Monsters
& Spinners home games.

  I did scan the dial while in my travels to Thanksgiving dinner this
morning, heard Nashua vs.Bishop Guertin football on WSMN (1590) as well as
WSNH, where Ed Leicius(sp?), formerly of WSMN was doing the play by play on
a clean feed, don't know if it was a Marti or 8K or better phone line.
WSMN's broadcast was over a dial up phone line. WCCM (1490) had the Andover
vs. Central catholic game over a cell phone that kept breaking up, and the
phone signal actually went dead for almost a minute, the board op didn't
fill with a PSA or a commercial, just dead air until the phone signal was

Also heard WNBP (1450 Newburyport) with Newburyport vs. Amesbury and WEIM
(1280 Fitchburg) carrying Fitchburg vs.Leominster.
