WBOQ is a directional class A facility (136m, 3200W ERP), with a broad
null to the southwest, says the FCC CDBS (and a couple of less official
sources). The BRA disagrees, indicating the 3.2KW as a CP - it likely just 
has not been updated.

Radio-locator doesn't indicate the directionality in any way, which I find 
strange. Perhaps they have not updated their pattern calculation.

In any case. it's ERP is well under 20KW in *any* direction.
