Does anyone know whether WESX's old tower in Marblehead is still
standing? WESX changed its CoL to Nahant and moved in at WLYN's tower
in Lynn more than a year ago (maybe more than two years ago by now).
Abandonment of the old WESX site for AM use was really sad because,
thanks to the salt water and the geography, it was a superb AM site
and WNSH could have used it. If WNSH were transmitting from the old
WESX site, it would need well under 10 kw to achieve pretty much the
same coverage that now requires 30 kW from its Endicott College site.
And yes, I know that the tower was too tall for use at 1570, but the
top portion could have been skirted or dismantled, leaving WNSH with a
very efficient 200 (or so)-degree tower.
