If you are right and they are using WVEI-HD1 and not WVEI-FM-HD1, the
implication is either that WVEI (AM) 1440 in Worcester is broadcasting
in HD (possible but doubtful, especially since AMs can transmit only
one HD stream and therefore HD1 makes no sense in the context of an
AM) or that they are doing it incorrectly. I'd put my money first on
your having gotten it wrong and second on Entercom's having screwed
