I don't think Buckley would like that Torrington proposal, since they 
sell separate advertising on WSNG, and they couldn't do that if it were 
sync'ed to WDRC.

I suspect there would be Canadian issues, too, since there's CHNC 610 in 
New Carlisle that would have to be protected, even though it's about to 
leave the air for good.
