102.9 is the FM translator for 800 (WCEC?), licensed to Newton NH I
think.Their HD2 may be running what used to be on WMVX 1110 Salem NH. When
that station got an FM translator on 98.9, the AM dropped the talk (they
even had Limbaugh) so the FM could duplicate the AM..which now has oldies
and is branded Valley 98.9
