I said awhile ago that if I tried to get WCRB on a Walkman, I'd
report on how it went. I tried. It was difficult. I had to set the
Walkman for local reception, rather than DX reception. And I had to
turn the dial carefully and try several times before I found WCRB.
The reception is fine, but it's hard to find, at least on an analog
Walkman. I assume it might be easier with a digital Walkman.
On a trip to Western Massachusetts today, I noted that the present
WCRB signal reaches out to Worcester or thereabouts. I think I
remember once picking it up in Chicopee on my car radio. So I tried
the WKLB 99.5 signal. I could hear that in Worcester, but not at a
quality that most people would want to listen to. I suppose that is
the audience that WCRB will lose on 99.5. Downtown Boston reception
will probably be better without all the images that prevail at 102.5.
