NERW wonders about this...no mention was made of any damage to the transmitters themselves (they're each about 15 miles from the Hyannis studios; WWKJ at the Falmouth town dump to the west, WJCO off Rt.6 between Orleans and Chatham to the east), or even to the STL. Since when does the loss of a satellite programming feed knock a station off the air completely? Could this be a shameless promotional stunt to draw attention to two of the Cape stations with the worst signals and ratings? If so, it worked... (And if there's more to this story than I've found out, I'd love to hear from some of the Boch folks who are known to read these postings now and again.)
Those are just a few of the many rumors making the rounds; rest assured that theOfficial NERW Receiver is making frequent stops on both frequencies, and any changes will be reported here at once.
