Default Mahoning River Rapid Name?

Does anyone know if the rapid immediately downriver of Route 224 on the Mahoning River in PA has a name?

I think that's one where I lost my Grundig radio. If it doesn't have a name, how about Grundig's Rapid, or Radio Rapid?

Default From Chuck Miller

This answer from Chuck Miller via Facebook Messenger:

"Rapid below 224 bridge, well that's its name, probably official naming rights could be acquired, it's some kind of pipe that runs across the river and rocks were piled around it to protect it, creating a fabulous little drop."

But I kind of like Radio Rapid as Ed suggested....has a nice alliterative ring to it.

If anyone we know has lost a chainsaw there it could be "Chainsaw Rapids".

Would there be "Radio Waves" at the Radio Rapids?

Would that area now be "Radio-Active? (It might be given the unfortunate history of the Mahoning)
