Right now, you can usually pick them up as far south
as just north of houlton.  With 50KW they'd cover all
of Aroostook with a heckuva signal.  I think there's
enough business in the area...  The citadel cluster up
there seems to do well.  They'd have the talk radio
market cornered, too  I believe WVOM is the closest
talk radio signal.  It's just a matter of running an
operation with a low overhead.
