I can't image a station with that signal, with no decent sized city in the primary coverage area, could make much money -- especially as an urban.
    101.7's stick is in western Cumberland County. No wonder Delmarva flipped it.

    The translator referenced on page 2 by Curtis, yields 80 watts at 250’ for Immaculate Heart with the primary being WWJZ. I would think there would be some minor erosion around Wilmington proper to the 1st adjacent 101.7 for WDEL.

    Maybe they just wanted/needed to invest some 1031 money before the deadline.

    No irony there.
