I was the "poster" who claimed that. When someone asked
which Boston area AM stations are currently in stereo, I offered
> 740 WJIB (stereo full-time, on both full day power and low
> night power).
> 1090 WILD (daytime only, the "critical" half-hour from local
> sunset until signoff is mono).
> 1360 WLYN (daytime only, low-power night signal is mono).
WJIB began broadcasting in stereo on the nighttime power
about a year ago or so. I was surprised to hear it, since the
nighttime power had been mono for a number of years. Since
I was in Cambridge where the signal is strong, I wondered at
first if the station hadn't powered down from the day signal,
but it actually was the low-power night signal, now in stereo.
Bring an AM stereo receiver to the Cambridge/Boston metro
area and nearby suburbs some night and hear for yourself.
