>As said before a station can ID with its calls and COL and then add
what they want
to accent what cities they serve besides the COL. I could say "WMWM
Salem-Beverly-Danvers-Peabody" if I wanted, as long as the "WMWM
Salem" was there. <

Bob, you're only partially right there.  You would have to say "WMWM Salem"
and then add whatever towns you wanted after.  Salem, as the COL, would have
to be first.

Correct form
"WMWM Salem"
"WMWM 91.7 Salem"
"WMWM Channel 219 Salem"

Incorrect form:
"WMWM Beverly-Salem"
"WMWM 91.7 FM Salem"
"91.7 WMWM"
