Quinnipiac University radio tower yanked

This comes from Gregory Wencek... Pretty unbelievable.

Quinnipiac Radio Tower Removed!

Posted by John Principale on September 06, 2006 at 14:24:50:

To my fellow radio professionals and enthusiasts:

Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT recently removed the tower for
their student run FM station. No notice was given to the students, as
they simply returned to school with WQAQ off the air. According to a
campus official the tower was removed "because it was an unsightly
eyesore right in the center of campus." They are in danger of losing
their license should they not replace the tower within the next year.

With more overnight and weekend shifts either voicetracked or
eliminated altogether, college radio is where tomorrow's talent can
polish their on air technique.

Please take the time to write Quinnipiac president John Lahey and
encourage him to replace WQAQ's tower.

Fine, Rich, ignore me and say it was Greg who sent this to you -- even though it was me. My feelings aren't hurt. (Sniff...) Honest.
(I know you're just still mad at me for running 15 minutes over into your pre-recorded show...)

Thanks for the credit, but Rasputin is the go to guy with this news. He was the person to find and distribute the notice.

I do many things... this wasn’t one of them!

But please do contact Mr. Lahey to encourage him to rethink this idea.
