No, By day, WSRO (licensed to Ashland) and WBIX (Licensed to Natick)
transmit from the WKOX (licensed to Framingham) site (IN Framingham--and
used by WKOX 24/7). (WSRO operates from the WKOX site by night too--with a
whole 9 watts.) At night, WBIX operates from the Ashland site of WAMG
(licensed to Dedham). Got that?
