Yes, but since sometime around ten years ago they've been allowed
an extra half-hour at very low power after local sunset. It's just
barely enough to weakly cover Boston and within most of Route 128
if WBAL isn't skipping in too strongly yet. It also used to switch
to mono for that last half-hour back when they were in AM stereo.

WILD goes fully off the air after that low power half-hour after
sunset, so technically it's still a daytimer, plus a half-hour.
