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...
