WICN 90.5 Out; WYDI 90.5 In

I live in Arlington Heights, not far from the summit of Belmont Hill. Up
here, I can get WICN (just fine on one radio, less fine, albeit mostly
listenable, on another). At this location, the prime culprit in the
assassination of WICN is first-adjacent WZBC. But if I go about half a mile
to the north, east, or south, which starts to take me down the hill, WZBC
falls victim to co-channel God-caster WSMA, which is somewhere on the
South Shore and is directional with an east-west figure-eight pattern
(nulled to the north and south). I assume your NH God-caster in Derry is
owned by Blount (AM 1320). Is that correct?
