Shutting down 99.1 completely would be throwing away what's probably 
a $20 million signal. I wish I were that rich!

There are ways to move 99.1 that would clear the spacing to make 99.5 
a pretty good (but not quite as good as the big guys) Boston 
signal...but then there are all sorts of things one can do when one's 
getting theoretical.
