I have long thought WGIR would be a good candidate for a 50KW DA-2 
upgrade.  However, would the present towers be able to handle the extra 
power?  Evidently, they can't handle IBOC (which is a good thing).  If 
they can't, maybe they can co exist at the WFEA site which is between two 
major hiways that should lessen the NIMBY crowd.  Either way, 610 
torrington CT could move to 1360 as a sync transmitter for WDRC,  and WIP 
could be upgraded to 10kw

>Or one could look into such a station in Manchester, NH with the same
pattern out of the existing WGIR-610 site.  50 kW day / 10 kW night out
of there would certainly deliver a reasonable signal through most of
the Merrimack Valley and a chunk of north suburban Boston bounded by
the NH border on the north, Route 128 on the south, Route 1 on the
east, and Route 3 on the west.
