I hope not.  Doesn't Salem have a history of respect for historic call 
letters?  Or am I thinking of another company.

Of course, WROL isn't really the historic call letters of that station, 
but it's as close as they can come right now to their original, historic 
call letters of WORL.

Will the increase in height actually make up for the power reduction?  
Their present signal gets out fairly well in the area.  I couldn't get 
them in the Berkshires, but that may be in part because of a strong 
station coming in from somewhere in New York state.  Eastward along the 
Turnpike, they fade out around Sturbridge.
