WNEF Update

I went to the WUMB member concert in Newburyport on Monday night, and 
got to speak to both Pat Monteith (Gen'l Mgr) and Grady Moates (CE) 
about the Newburyport 91.7 signal, WNEF.   Where they are now is that 
the new antenna has been installed, but they are operating at half 
power until the needed FCC approval is received.  They expect this by 
the end of the month.

My observation in Salem, NH, is that they are already a bit stronger 
than before, but still suffering from splash for WUML on 91.5.  I 
listened briefly to WUML around noontime today, they were doing 
foreign language programming, which seemed to me to be loud and 
distorted.  I have no means to measure this, but it seemed to me that 
they might be over-modulated.
