yes, WAAF comes in very well here, on a scale of 10, about a 6. It's signal
can even be heard in most of Berkshire County. The only Boston-licensed FM
stations that put any signal into this area are WBMX, WTKK and WMJX. WXKS
puts in a good signal when WEBE (Westport, CT) does not interfere.

Although they're licensed to Worcester, WAAF does treat itself (and ratings
also show) it's legitimate to call it a Boston station, as contrasted to
WSRS and WXLO, which while reaching most if not all ot the Boston market do
not market themselves as Boston stations...

After all that....my point is that WAAF does reach most of the Springfield

I've always been able to hear WBZ's day signal quite well out around
Amherst and Springfield (even without WBZA adding its few watts).  No
Boston-area FM station gets out that far.
