The 1962 Radio/TV Annual lists the owner as Harvey Sheldon, the 
frequency is indeed at 105.3, and the ERP in kilowatts is listed at 
1.4... No antenna height was given.  Boston itself in 1962 had 5 FMs 
listed (WBZ-FM, WCOP-FM, WEEI-FM, WHDH-FM, and WRKO-FM), and there 
was one other in Brookline (WBOS-FM)... all of which were much 
stronger in power than WUPY.
