Actually, WXRV has not moved their transmitter, nor are
they applying to. For some reason they changed their COL
to Andover, but their transmitter remains in Haverhill.

Why they did this, I have no idea. I know they want to
image as a Boston station, but I'm sure their signal
doesn't cover Boston well enough to make it their COL,
and they can't move the transmitter (significantly) any
closer due to a number of other stations. I don't think
they could even move it to Andover without a major power

Perhaps they want to build a new studio facility (or at
least a sales office) in a town that's at least along a
highway to Boston (Route 93), than stay to in Haverhill
which is sort of off the beaten path geographically.
