Here's my list from two years ago:

Freq.     Station     RDS Indication
-----     -------     --------------

88.9      WERS        "WERS"
92.9      WBOS        "WBOS-FM"
96.9      WTKK        "FM-TALK"
104.9     WBOQ        "WBACH"
105.7     WROR        "WROR-FM"
106.7     WMJX        "WMJX-FM"

I think I missed WGIR-FM in there.  WERS uses it, as you thought.

Some friends of mine contacted Sangean, but we were never able to get a
straight answer from them;  they claim their RDS implementation "reads
everything", but I suspect you are more correct and the radio only reads
the first page.

The other problem with the radio besides RDS and the tuner is its lack of
an FM antenna input.

Take care,
