*Speaking of the ice storm, it's the reason WGAN (560) in Portland,
MAINE was on night pattern all last week.  The folks at 'GAN tell NERW
that one of their towers was so overloaded with ice last winter that
it sank several inches, driving the base of the tower right through
the base plate and crushing the insulator.  Engineers jacked up the
tower (all 300,000 pounds of it!) and replaced the insulator.  WGAN
returned to day pattern Saturday morning.
