Looks like the Vermont Agency of Transportation has a
bunch of construction permits for LPFMs in the Green
Mt. State. To be exact:

WRUT-LP 93.3 Rutland
WMDB-LP 94.9 Middlebury
WFAI-LP 95.9 Fairlee
WSTW-LP 96.5 Stowe
WTET-LP 96.5 Thetford
WMID-LP 96.9 Middlesex
WWIL-LP 98.1 Williston
WDER-LP 98.3 Derby
WBOL-LP 98.5 Boltonville
WMAN-LP 98.9 Manchester

...and so on. There are CPs for stations in West
Dover, Orleans, Putney, Randolph, and Jonesville, too.

much as 1075 ft (WMDB Middlebury). No idea when
they're going on. Am wondering:

--with 100 watts, can they cover a half decent amount
of territory (given the mountainous nature of the

--when will they debut (any idea)?

--what kind of programming? Since it's "Vermont
Transport" I have no idea if it's tourist info
stations, or what. Anyone know?
