It is certainly audible at Fenway.  I drive by there into the Longwood area
every day and can pick up WPLM and WKLB easily.

I seem to remember a year(?) when WPLM and carried the Sox.
(Jack Campbell was adamant that WPLM was enough to cover Boston.  And WKLB
has a better downtown signal than WPLM.)

When the Bruins were on WPLM...they chose to supplement the coverage with a
small Boston AM (1150AM) as their Boston affiliate.

I don't know if you've ever been to an arena size conference.  Some
conferences offer an "inside the forum" rebroadcast on AM radio....for
walkmen, etc.  This is for hearing impaired and people needing a
translation, etc.

Do you think Fenway Park could offer the same thing within the stadium?  A
rebroadcast of the radio call on some low powered AM frequency?
