That's correct - the CP has indeed lapsed.

Even if it would work (and I think Dan's right that it wouldn't), it would
be considered a major change. The only changes you can make that are minor
are changes in power, changes in frequency by +/- 10 or 20 kHz, and
changes of transmitter site or antenna configuration. Changing COL (in
this case, North Dartmouth to Taunton) counts as a major change.
