WJOE (formerly the late, lamented WPNS [the worst choice of call letters in 
the history of broadcasting]) is licensed to Orange, where the transmitter 
is located and where the original (WCAT) studio building still stands.

I assume this proposal means the whole shebang will be leaving Orange-Athol 
. . . or will the current transmitter act as a relay for western Mass.?  I 
wasn't aware there was a Brazilian market in that area.   Apparently so.

It sticks in my mind that Langer is the current owner, though I may be 
wrong.   -Doug
