The old WUPY Lynn tower?

I was wrong about the Class A maximum of that day (1961-63). It was
not 3 kW @ 300' AAT as I wrote; it was 1 kW @ 250'. Somebody here
surely knows when the A maximum was raised to 3 kW @ 300', but I do
not know. In any event, as reported by Paul Walker, 1.4 kW at an
unspecified height (I believe it was more than 250' AAT, but I don't
know that), was enough to lift WUPY/WUPI out of Class A.
