I wonder if by that time, the WLLH-AM Lowell transmitter will be
back on.  I was up in Nashua recently to scope out the new WEVS-FM
88.3 antenna atop St Joseph's Hospital (Question: some hospitals
won't allow you to bring a cell phone on their premises because 
the radiation couild affect sensitive instruments, but it's ok
for St Joe's to have a 5,000-watt FM transmitter on the roof. Weird.)
and I also sampled AM 1400 to see if the ESPN broadcast on that 
frequency reach Nashua.  It was dead, indicating that
the feeble sound I heard only sporadically was the one emanating
from the Lawrence skyscraper.  If and when Lowell goes operational,
even if it doesn't get into downtown Nashua well, it will offer
a nearly local-grade signal to Dunstable, Tyngsboro  and Pepperell,
so denizens of those towns will often get duplicate programming.
