Supposedly, he acquired additional land adjacent to the existing transmitter
site with the objective of applying for a power increase, which might be
technically feasible with a more complex DA built on the new land. With more
power, WEIM might be able to serve northwestern parts of the Boston market
during the daytime. The question is whether such an attempt would enable the
station to derive any revenue from the Boston market. I think it would take
some very unusual circumstances for that to happen--programming in demand in
Boston that no station closer to the City was willing to carry.
