1270 WLAW CP?

I think Taunton is much too close to WMKI and probably also too close to
WRNI for 1270 to work there. WPEP is ND-U. 1 kW-D/227W-N. The 185' tower is
plenty tall enough for 1270--almost 86 degrees at 1270, but IIRC, WLAW had
proposed quite an elaborate DA--probably four towers, and even that that
would be unlikely to be adequate given the proximity to WMKI and WRNI. Nice
try. No cigar.
