When I was in Bermuda in 1966, the two island radio stations were ZBM 
and ZFB.  I believe ZFB was brand new at the time.  I think ZBM may have 
operated on two frequencies, but I don't remember what they were, but if 
WPTR has to protect ZNS1, I'm guessing that ZNS must be the former ZBM 
and that ZNS1 is one of the frequencies on which ZBM operated in 1966.

Incidentally, one night, as I was pulling out of a restaurant parking 
lot at 1 AM on my rented moped, a VW pulled up next to me, and I clearly 
heard the WBZ news on the car's radio.  It sounded like a local.
