WLLH-AM Lawrence Facility To Remain Silent For A While

I believe 1400's Lowell-Lawrence synchronous operation is WAY older than 60
years and AFAIK both have been fully licensed for nearly all of that time.
Although one of the signals likely predates the other (my guess is that the
Lowell signal is the older one and a proposed Haverhill transmitter was
never built but was probably envisioned from the outset--hence the WLLH
calls), my understanding is that both signals have been on the air for
something closer to 75 years. As you know, until 15 or 20 years ago (based
on the CE's posting, I guess that should read 22 years ago), BOTH
transmitters were rooftop installations. At that time, the current Lowell
transmitter, with a conventional tower, signed on to replace the original
rooftop transmitter in Lowell. The Lawrence rooftop setup is at its original
location with its original tower. Does anyone have any different
