Cold Winter Update 2016…

Took a long long time, but finally, I have been able to get some much needed updates done to my website!

And it happens to be one of the biggest and recent changes to happen around here! Of course, I am talking about the brand new WCTK Cat Country 98.1 and WNBH 1340 towers in New Bedford.

We also got to see an antenna make a rare “re-appearance” on NECRAT! This one is one we’ve featured for many many years on this site. It has been relocated to Rhode Island from Worcester.
Yes, the “WAAF Kegs” are now the “WVEI-FM Aux Kegs”

The exWAAF now WVEI antenna. It's so beautiful!
