830 would count towards Entercom's Boston cap, just as WSRS/WTAG count
against CC's. But if Entercom can have 1440 in Worcester, it can just as
easily have 830.

Even including Worcester, CC has only six signals (3 AM, 3 FM) against a
market cap of 8. Entercom now has three AMs (680, 850, 1440) and three FMs
(93.7, 97.7, 107.3), also for a total of 6 against a cap of 8.

The only owner in the market that's maxed out is Greater Media, which has
5 FMs, the most any owner is allowed in a market. And even they could add
AMs if they so desired.
