One area that WDEV-FM no longer reaches, however, is Colchester-Essex 
Junction. Clear Channel put a translator on at 96.3 last year from 
its studios at Fort Ethan Allen, boosting the 96.7 signal into 
Burlington. It wipes WDEV-FM right off the map in that area.

As for Bennington, a good radio should be able to pull out WCBS there 
even for Yanks day games. But why would anyone WANT to...? ;-)
