WAR OF THE WORLDS

So am I correct in believing that if 860 was in Wayne, it was 760 that was in Bound Brook? If memory serves, Bound Brook is in central NJ. Even with 50 kW and the dynamite soil conductivity in most of NJ, WJZ must have been at a signal disadvantage in the five boroughs relative to its competition.

That's an aux tower shared by WFAN and WCBS.
The previous WABC/WCBS sites were on Columbia Island, and before that in
Wayne, NJ. The Wayne tower was a Blaw-Knox diamond and is believed to be
the first vertical series-fed tower in use in the US.
