I certainly hope it is just a lower power situation, as they have
no other licensed FM facility with which to work. They have an old Harris
3-bay (tuned to 97.7) on their original tower that they have used a number
of times when there have been troubles with the Hammond Ridge site.

Indeed - there is not much view from up there (trees are pretty thick).
They don't get up there much either, as I had to point out to them that
several of the bays of their 10-bay Shively antenna had come disconnected
from the tower (and were thus being supported by the hardline).
The concept of requiring one's entire business to rely upon the ability to
continue renting a critical or irreplacable asset is a methodology I would
recommend to all my competition.
