WCAP announced this afternoon that starting after the first of January, they
will be picking up the Howie Carr show, displacing the current afternoon
drive show, Glenn Ordway's Big Show Unfiltered. Howie will also make a live
guest appearance on WCAP's annual Salvation Army radiothon tomorrow morning
between 8:00 & 10:00 AM, and will autograph copies of his latest book for a
minimum donation.


Adding WCAP to Howie Carr's network will make up for some of the difficulty
of picking up WMEX after sunset in the Lowell area. However, WCAP has been
operating on the old Bauer backup transmitter for several weeks now, putting
out just shy of 1,000 watts. At night, WOFX Troy can be heard under WCAP 3
to 4 miles (as the crow flies) in Tewksbury, in the path where the night
pattern sends most of the signal. The Harris 5K has been in sick bay, don't
know when or if it will be repaired/replaced. It is the original transmitter
from when they built out the 5K DA-2 site in 1980.
