Yes, yes, yes and yes. WGUY moved to 1250 sometime in the sixties, I 
believe, clearing the way for WBME to sign on. WBME was gone by the early 
nineties, and 1200 in Brewer didn't last much longer. Both were silent by 
1995 at the very latest.

WQDY endured until just last year, when it went silent to prevent an 
ownership-limit problem when its owner added the 102.9 signal to his 
existing WQDY AM-FM. (And WALZ-FM in Machias, too.)
