Re: Tech question (Was Re: WBZ stereo?)

Marc, the answer is yes.

The simple answer is to why is to think of the broadcasted signal as a pie.

In mono 100% of the signal is the program.

Stereo splits the modulation 3 ways.
Approx. 45% is the left+right signal so a mono radio can listen.
Another  45% is the left minus right which can be used to decode separate
left and right channels.  The rest is used for the stereo carrier.  It 
turns on the
stereo circuitry and the light on your receiver.
