WESX on the move?

I looked at the application. The proposed site is indeed the WLYN site. The
app acknowledges prohibited overlap with WMKI. The night coverage of Saugus
is only a little more than half of the normal minimum of 80% of the CoL. It
is, of course, better than the coverage of Salem from the propsed site,
which is zero percent at night. The engineer who prepared the application
does not have an especially good reputation but there is no directional
antenna design involved in this app, so maybe this job plays to her
strengths rather than to her weaknesses. One of the mysteries is the
statement that "the existing site has become unavailable." That was the only
reason I found for why the move is necessary. Usually, applications explain
forced moves more completely. I suspect that the existing site really has
not become unavailable because, if it had, there would be a more complete
explanation of the reason for its becoming unavailable. As long as the
station is not being evicted, I don't think the FCC will aceept "the site
has become unavailable" as an adequate explanation for a proposed move.
