I think WBNW is also now using its night power/pattern at night. Probably
the first time they have done so in about four years. To compensate, the
audio is so incredibly compressed that it is almost unintelligible. I'm not
sure which is preferable--so drowned out by interference that it is
unintelligible or so compressed it is unintelligible. I doubt whether Barry
Armstrong wants to spend the money to improve the night signal--if indeed
any such improvement is technically feasible. Presumably, though, he was
warned about using the day power and pattern all night or he wouldn't have
changed the way the station was operating.
