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.
