WHRB & WSKX Tweak Signals

Two FM stations operating on 95.3, WHRB COL Cambridge, MA TL Financial/Theater District of downtown Boston, and
 WSKX COL York, ME TL Mt Agamenticus, ME (a hill really) have applied to tweak their facilities. WHRB will go from a
 directional antenna to a non-directional antenna, and lower its ERP a skosh, while WSKX alter its DA pattern to spread
 its full power over a large area, while reducing its signal south and southwest. This seems a little odd because WWWA-FM
 95.3 is boosting its power at the same time. Actually, to paraphrase Randy Newman, WSKX has no reason to exist...it
 would be better if it went away. It's supposedly a part of the Portsmouth, NH/Kittery, ME market, and in the past failed
 to show up in the ratings the last time I looked (with different call letters). Is there a Harvardian somewhere with a few idle
 bucks to buy out WSKX and silence it?
