Having consulted WADK, the other issue is how long they've been at 1540--
nearly 50 years, if my math is correct. And with their audience being
older and very conservative, I believe ownership has been reticent to make
any drastic changes in frequency. But the move that made no sense to me
was made a few years ago when their FM, then called WOTB, which was at
100.3 and nearly reached Providence with a decent signal, moved to 99.3 and
now barely gets into Providence, although the station is really strong in
parts of Connecticut. But I thought with a jazz format, aiming your signal
at Providence would be a good idea, but alas, nobody asked me...
