Good question.  According to CDBS, the tallest AM tower(s) by physical
height in New England belong(s) to WEEI, at 198.1 m (649.9 ft).  The
tallest AM tower by electrical height in New England is WNBH's, at
243.8 degrees (2/3 wave or 497.3 ft).

In the whole country, the winners are WRDT (560 Monroe, Mich.) at
302.6 m (992.8 ft or 203.4 electrical degrees) and, jointly, KLSD
(1360 San Diego, Calif.) and WTTN (1580 Watertown, Wisc.) at 285.7
degrees (nearly 4/5 wave, 573 ft for KLSD and 494 ft for WTTN).
