In all honesty I would not be surprised at all if
thats the case.  When I was in college at Plattsburgh,
I remember it sounding like it was run on a shoestring
budget.  And given that its only a daytimer, I can't
believe that place would get any significant amount of
listeners (if any at all), much less actually turn a
profit in this day and age.  With that in mind, it
would only make logical sense to me that its
facilities have been allowed to deteriorate over the
years.  Furthermore, and Scott Fybush would have to
verify this because I have never actually seen their
tower and studios, I understand that station is run
out of an old beat up trailer somewhere on a back road
in the town of Peru (south of Plattsburgh).  From what
I've heard, taking one look at the facilities they
have and use would lead one to believe that the place
has not seen any real maintenance in many many years.
