Exclusion of WMEX calls

Any info about tower site, day and night power?

Diplexing with 1260, 1300, or even 1030 should put city-grade into Quincy and probably adequate grade around Dorchester, Milton, Braintree, Weymouth, Hingham, and Hull.

There's a big tower near the Neponset River just west of the Distressway.  I think that would be Milton.  Not sure what that's used for.  Maybe some kind of a sloping wire / vertical dipole off the east side of that could work.  "Franklin" type antenna wouldn't necessarily require ground radials.

If the station has to be directional, that's a different ballgame.  1200/1330/1600 site (Oak Park - Newton) likely too far inland / west to deliver adequate "beef" to a South Shore market.

1510 South Shore coverage (rather than full Boston metro) had been mentioned at one point.  With water towards Winthrop, Revere, Lynn, Swampscott you get some limited North Shore coverage also.  That's certainly the case for 1300.

Of course if 5 kW or less you don't get full coverage of either shore or the whole Boston metro.

That's from the WMEX sale agreement.Scott Fybush said Daly got to use WMEX
calls only through permission from WMEX-LP in NH.
