Conelrad in Boston area

Of course, higher powered stations participated. Many of them simply lowered the plate voltage. Others dedicated lower-powered backup transmitters to ConElRad. I even know of one station that constructed a home-brew transmitter just for ConElRad--I suppose because one of the engineers just wanted to do it.

I appreciated the post explaining how Conrelrad worked.   Did the 5 kw limitation mean that stations like WBZ, WHDH and, at the time, WNAC did not participate?

Did those stations have standby 5 kw transmitters?   I would seem kind of crazy to exclude that stations that had the most resources from the system.
