“Like many hams, Amateur Radio has provided a gateway to the field of electronics and ultimately to an occupation in broadcast engineering, employed by Saga Communications Inc, as Director of Engineering for stations WZID, WMLL and historic WFEA in Manchester. I also serve as Technical Director of NH Gospel Radio Inc. with stations WVNH in Concord and WANH in Meredith,” writes Stohrer on his QRZ.com page. 

WFEA operates on 1370 kHz. It was first licensed and on the air in 1932. The original Blaw Knox tower continues to radiate 90 years after installation.
