Daytimer sign-offs

That would be in the Winter Only....

I believe in the Summer, even allowing for Baltimore being somewhat west of
Boston, Boston has a later sunset due to the higher latitude..

Nope. WILD can stay at full (critical hours) power (somewhat less than
2 kW) until 5:30 DST tonight and tomorrow. But WILD gets another half
hour (in most months) at reduced power, because the sun sets at WBAL
roughly 1/2 hour after the sun sets in Boston.
