But if Vinikoor's 1490 can do it from a cell tower in Lebanon, then a
1340 could presumably work there too (assuming there are no issues
with adjacent channels).  (It turns out, by the way, that I was wrong:
Lebanon is a city, so West Lebanon doesn't exist as an independent
place to be served.  The 1490 is licensed to Lebanon and was granted
as a new station in 2004 from the last AM window in 2000.)
