    Unhappy So-long WMVY radio

    This is too bad, it seems like my favorite radio station WMVY radio has been sold to public radio station WBUR.

    It looks like there will be online streaming but I'm not set up for that-currently.
    This was a radio station that had a spectacular playlist. When I called, I spoke directly to the DJ.
    As it is (was) a relatively low power station, some years back, I went to the trouble of putting up an antenna cut for their frequency and "aimed" it at the station so I could receive their signal.
    Goodby great OTH music, DJ's and really clutter free music.

    Gary, I've been listening to a steaming wmvy broadcast for the past half hour from my hotel room in Bar Harbor on the iPhone. From the way I read that news release, they aren't going away at all, just selling their fm frequency license.

    Yeah- something like that Tom. In a vehicle, I looked forward to tuning in when I was south of rt44, headed to the cape. From here, I could get it with the Yagi.
    Now it appears it will be more of an effort to to listen. How does the radio streaming effect plan usage on the IPhone? Here I could get one of the new internet radios and hook it up here.................in my spare time.

    Depends on your data plan. I have an old "unlimited" data plan and have never bumped against the 3GB "Unlimited Limit" and I have no idea how much I've used.

    Video streaming on the ipad uses a lot, audio shouldn't be too bad. It is generally sent at a relatively low bit rate.

    Tom. I'm at 2Gig and my usage has been about 2/10ths of that. The new software in the IPhone doesn't alert you when your on WiFi so it's a little more difficult to keep track of. It's a great station...I usually turn it on around 03:00 when 75 fades
