    101.1 in Providence has currently a three way share of the frequency BUT, YES, BUT…WADK 1540 A.M. has also applied for a translator on 101.1 fm in Newport.

    WADK airs John Depetro afternoons 1-5 pm.I assume John is making a dent in WPRO and now WADK is trying to better their signal.

    101.1 in Rhode Island is panning out to be a very busy frequency on top of B101 WWBB at 101.5 running a lower power station now.Sounds to me they shot themselves in the foot.



    Well as we now know, DePetro isn’t going to be heard on WADK’s new 101.1 translator whenever they get it on the air.  😛

    WWBB doesn’t really factor into 101.1’s viability.  Second-adjacent interference is pretty rare these days.  It’s more the co-channel.  I would expect that the 101.1 LPFM in PVD and the 101.1 translator in Newport will interact a lot like how 96.5 WIGV-LP in PVD and 96.5 W243AI in Newport interact: there’s a clear area where the two signals beat the hell out of each other, but each covers their primary market just fine.
