WWNH was never granted a license to cover. The construction permit ran 
out, and the station was allowed to stay on the air under an STA, but no 
license was ever issued. The Commission seems to have decided to ignore 
any application to which Mr. Dodge was a party, accepting it for filing 
but never acting on it. It is one of the more egregious examples of FCC 
arbitrariness, in my opinion. The man may or may not hae been fit to hold 
a broadcast license, but he deserved due process, and the FCC never gave 
it to him.

More recently, Pamal applied to sell WPNI in Amherst to Mr. Dodge a few 
years ago, and the Commission sat on that application. After some months 
Pamal shut the station down, and the license evaporated a year later with 
never a word from the Commission on the proposed sale.

If the king is in a good mood today, he may condescend to hear a few 
petitions from us peasants. Le Roi s'avisera.
