I think that WNTN 1550 may have completed its transmitter site move from Newton to a diplex operation at the WJIB 740 tower on Concord Ave., Cambridge.

The signal strength here seems to be less.  Even though the path from Cambridge to here has a slighter higher over-water percentage than that from Newton, neither the minor uptick in that percentage value nor the slight distance reduction is enough to make up for the significant power reduction.  When checked this afternoon the WNTN signal was about even with co-channel WSDK from the Hartford, CT area.  It had previously dominated.  Adjacent channels 1540 (WXEX-NH over WADK-RI, WDCD-NY) and 1560 (WFME-NY) signals were stronger.
