Now what I've been wondering about for a long time is this:  When we moved to Bedford, MA in 
May 1957 and shortly after that got a new TV set, we sometimes used to get signal, snowy but 
recognizeable, from Channel 6 in Portland, Maine.  Until WHDH-TV channel 5 came on.  We 
never could get Channel 6 after that.
