I don't know that the agreement itself is part of the public record; it's 
not filed with the WNSH application, although there is a paragraph in the 
application that reads as follows:

"The licensee of standard broadcast station WPEP, 1570 kHz, Taunton, 
(Facility Id 61601) has entered into an agreement with Willow Farm which 
conditionally provides
for the surrender of the WPEP license prior to the commencement of 
operation by Willow Farm of
the facilities requested herein."

Keep in mind that Willow Farm - Keating's company - used to own WPEP as 
well, and it's not unreasonable to think that the sale of WPEP to Anastos 
may have come with some sort of informal agreement down the road to make 
the WNSH upgrade possible. There's nothing about it in the asset purchase 
agreement filed with the WPEP sale back in 2001.
