It was no secret that, because of its lower

 fact that WLAW was
licensed to Lawrence but wanted to serve Boston forced
 on it a
transmitter location and a directional pattern that
 were, for the most
part, superior to WHDH's.

    Couldn't WHDH have done better by building on a
site farther west and/or southwest of the city? That
way, it should have done better in metro west --
which, now that it has a substantial population, is
the major weak spot for every old-line Boston AM
station except WBZ.
