Interesting to read the (what appears to be) blatantly plagarized text in 
the third paragraph - from the Archives.

The original (penned by Scott Fybush in what, 1996?) is here:

And to consider that I almost bought that facility. The signal has
tremendous potential, though the signal from WHOM's 48KW from 1191m ASL
crushes the 24KW (from the 10-bay Shivley array on Hammond Ridge) to the
west. Signals from both stations are entirely unintelligable for a good
50+ mile zone when driving up I-95 - to just north of Bangor, a market I'm
quite sure they'd love to claim, but really can't, without a change in
frequency (or a move south, which is impossible with the distance to 
Class-B WKSQ (94.5, Ellsworth).

I can tell you stories about interacting with the Talbotts. I'll just 
say... interesting.
