I remember that WODS used FMX for a while. I believe I recall hearing 
that the manufacturer was affiliated with CBS, so many of their stations
used it. (103.3 may have begun when they were WMRQ).

I never had an FMX decoding receiver, but I recall that on a conventional 
FM stereo receiver WODS had severe distortion if you were in an area in 
which there was the slightest amount of multipath signal reflection. Much 
worse than common multipath distortion. Some people attributed this to the 
FMX at the time.
