So where is WBUH's transmitter? What is the HAAT? Is there a directional antenna? If so, what does the pattern look like? Were there any special provisions to avoid interference from/to WERS? How did BU manage to build this new station without attracting or nearly without attracting the attention of the radio Geek community? This ought to have been big news months before sign-on.

                                Cape Cod 
                          Dear Daniel,    

                          I am pleased to share with you that, today, WBUR is announcing the creation of a brand-new, custom-built radio station, WBUH 89.1 FM, in Brewster, Mass. This powerful new station will simulcast WBUR's award-winning news and information programming on a full-power "Class B" 50,000-watt signal, making it the first and only non-commercial Cape station of this magnitude.

                          WBUH 89.1 FM will provide a strong signal across most of Cape Cod, including the Outer and Lower Cape, complementing WBUR's existing 3,000-watt signal, WBUA 92.7 FM on Martha's Vineyard, which reaches the Upper and Mid Cape, as well as Massachusetts' SouthCoast communities. Both 89.1 and 92.7 -- which we're collectively calling WBUR Cape Cod -- are in addition to WBUR's primary 50,000-watt signal, 90.9 FM, which broadcasts across all of metropolitan Boston and eastern Massachusetts.

                          The frequency 89.1 FM has never been used before on the Cape, so this marks the birth of a truly brand-new station. This new signal, enhancing our reach all over the Cape and Islands, is something we've hoped to achieve for the last decade, and we're excited that it is becoming a reality.

                          This station is part of our longstanding commitment to serve the people of Greater Boston and Eastern Massachusetts with the best in public radio. It underscores the continued importance of broadcast radio, even as we execute on our strategic commitments to grow our programming, digital platforms and community initiatives.  

                          It's my pleasure to share this exciting news with you directly, and to thank you for your continued support of WBUR. I welcome your comments.
