WAAB was at 1410, actually (with only minor exceptions, everything from 
1200-1450 moved 30 kc up the dial in NARBA), and I'm pretty sure its 
shared tower with WNAC was considerably shorter than 350'.

It was also, as best I've been able to discern, the very first licensed 
vertical radiator used for AM in the US.
