According to www.radio-locator.com  (search WALE), 990AM is now a 
Spanish language broadcaster but currently off the air. License granted 
July 9,1999 to Greenville, RI expires in 2014. Last FCC update was 
December 29, 2006.  Owned by Cumbre Broadcasting.

The 50Kw coverage pattern and xmtr site Northwest of Smithfield near 
Tarkin, RI (not Burrellville RI) coordinates are shown.  The Google 
satellite map zooms in on the six tower array.

The 2007 RI Media Guide has this listing (the WALE's web site 
supermax990am.com doesn't work if they are off the air, however). They 
own are two other stations in the market: Latina 100.3 (Middletown) and  
Festival Jazz 102.7 (Narragansett Pier):
