The transactions section of included a multi-station 
deal whereby an entity called Calvary Radio Network would transfer ownership 
of a couple of dozen radio stations and translators to Calvary Church of Costa
Mesa.  I don't know if these are totally separate groups, but one of them
apparently owed the other $2-million or so, and thus the transfer became a
debt-settling transaction.  Included among the stations were several in New England:
WFGL-AM 960, given as Fitchburg/Boston (that will come as a surprise to WROL)
and an FM in Gardner, MA, WJWT 91.7.  Up in Maine, WJCX-FM 99.5 in Pittsfield 
was sold.  I noticed that r&r gave WFGL-AM's power as 3 kw, but at
it's listed as 2.5.  WFGL was a 1,000 watt station for a long time, but 
apparently this power boost is fairly recent, and the full effect of the 
increase seems to be oriented NNW, towards Ashburnham and Winchendon.  Must
have been trying to get the Wichendon Furniture Group's advertising (I
assume the 960 operation was commercial, the 91.7 was not.)
