Moose Radio Not Transmitting

Ah the vagaries of the rating systems. Summer is the time the moose are out 
growing their antlers and showing off for the tourists. Since they aren't 
listening to the radio what's the point of broadcasting stuff to them? Wait 
until fall when the rut reports become available and the bulls and the cows 
start using it again to find each other to make calves. Then hopefully Fish 
and Game will have it return as a public service to the moose to encourage 
the proliferation of the herds. <GRIN> *
