The original impetus for our trip up to Nashua, these three towers belong to WSMN (1590 Nashua). WSMN's 5-kW DA-1 service puts a substantial signal over Nashua and Hudson overnight, but in recent years that has not been enough to overcome an audience increasingly glued to the FM band. WSMN's signal at the high end of the band, far from any other stations in the market, did not help matters. In its later years, WSMN was supported in part by the 1590 Broadcaster, a weekly "shopper" newspaper.
