This was coming for a long time, wasn't it?

Dan Strassberg, how much power do you think 1590 could run ND-D from a 
single unobtrusive tower somewhere? I can't imagine that they can get a new 
DA built in a year (or, likely, ever) - and the clock is now ticking 
towards the deletion of the license on 1/31/06 unless they find a way to 
get back from some sort of temporary facility before that.

I'm about to share the news with Mrs. NERW, who looks back on WSMN as the 
station that drove her completely out of radio in the early 90s...I don't 
expect any tears to be shed :-)
