    The delayed WATD move to a new permanent location has taken an interesting step. They have shut down, providing notice of suspension and requested silent STA, in order to move equipment out of the present location due to snow in the forecast:

    Just to be clear, this is WATD AM, not FM.  P=)

    I was wondering why WATD-1460 hadn’t yet returned to the air.

    Should have specified AM… The AM site has an odd history and many FCC filings. Ed Perry bought the station known then as WXBR while it was off the AIR on another STA involving a dispute with the tower owner. He got it back on the air broadcasting temporarily from a church in West Bridgewater. That would have worked out OK, if not for the tendency of the church fire alarm being affected by the signal and falsely summon the local fire department too many times. It’s a long story…

    The FCC today approved Ed Perry’s plan to return WATD-AM to the air:
