Not radio...but I scared the crap out of my now ex wife went we went to 
Bermuda on our honeymoon in 1990. We were each going to rent a moped but she 
couldn't get the hang of it so she rode on the back of mine and I was 
whipping up and down the roads dodging in and out of Hamilton "traffic" such 
that it was! Scared the crap out of her.....and NO that's not what caused 
the divorce <G>

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.
