I can believe that he will get the low-power nondirectional operation going,
but I think the chances of his getting a full-power operation back on the
air are slim to none. I'm assuming that he paid little enough that if all he
can get is a permit to run at low power on 1590, he won't have overpaid. If
the price was based on the idea that he can get a full-power directional
operation back on the air, he wasted his money. Maybe he believes that he
can get an authorization to move the unused ex-band allocation on 1700 from
Rochester to Nashua. If the FCC were amenable, that could work because it
could be done with one relatively short stick. In fact, the 900 tower would
likely be ideal.
