Show of hands here...

Is there ANYONE in the New England broadcast community who didn't know that 
there were environmental problems at that transmitter site? I remember 
going to visit it way back in 1993 or so and having more than one engineer 
ask me if I was glowing afterward!

I also like how they're still claiming they plan to change the calls of 990 
to "WMAX." Sorry, guys...those calls are still just as taken in Michigan as 
they were the first time that idea got floated.
