My typo, 102.9

I find that 102.7 and 103.1 would have been much better choices of
frequencies to use, even though you have adjacent 102.5 WCRB and 103.3
WODS to think about.

Personally I think they should tighten up the co-channel restrictions and
considerably loosen up the adjacent channel restraints.

As it is now, when riding in your car, there are two nearly unusable
station on 102.9. They just beat the heck out of each other throughout the
intended coverage area (Londonderry) except near the North School
transmitter site. 

The High School location, is also adjacent to the a Middle and Elementary
School. Driving by there the WLLO-LP signal gets some co-channel
interference. There are certain spots in the library parking lot across
the street that if you position your car properly, you can get a good
stereo signal from WBLM.

The audio quality of WLLO-LP is disappointing. The lows and highs just
aren't there. If you adjust your low bass to fit WLLO-LP, you will get a
rude awakening when you drive 50 feet and WBLM comes again dominates.
Sounds like they over process that audio, quiet passages get very hissy.

But what other station can you go from Patsy Cline and segue into Procal
Harem.  Actually some of their music selections are old seldom played
favorite of mine. It's not too often you hear Karla Bonoff on commercial
