I didn't say that.  In fact, I didn't mention backups at all, since I
don't know what any of the stations will be doing for backup.  I'm not
sure if Grady said anything about backups.

Does Charles River own that parking lot?

It doesn't need to.  They're getting a BE 4MX25.  So is WUNR.  Since
these are solid-state transmitters, there's no issue with odd or low
power levels (other than efficiency).

Don't know.  Grady did say that the zoning restrictions mean that
(other than replacing the towers) they cannot make any alterations to
the exterior of the building, which is why the stations are buying the
BEs -- they are the only transmitters small enough and efficient
enough to fit three stations in the old building.
