As has been discussed here before, the problem with the 1500 signal is
that it only covers about half of its market at night, and the cost of
moving it to somewhat that would allow it to serve the whole market is
greater than even an upgraded facility's value (particularly in these
times).  Bonneville's not one for throwing good money after bad.
