Conelrad in Boston area

You're gonna need Donna to give you a definitive answer and even she
may not have the info. but you can make a pretty good educated guess:
640 would have been covered by 590, 680, 740 (maybe), 850, 950, and
1030. 1240 would have been covered by 1090, 1150, 1260, 1300 (maybe),
1360, 1430, 1510, and 1600. That would have put at least five
transmitters, switching in round-robin fashion, on each of the two
ConElRad frequencies. Should have worked as planned (that is, not too
well) without significant gaps.
