I hadn't known about the switch to DA-2 and the different pattern, but you're right; the daytime signal did improve considerably.  Didn't help at night, though.  Up in Ashburnham, where I lived, the only rock stations we 
kids could get at night were usually distant --- WABC, WPOP, WDRC, WPTR, WKBW   Even WEIM, which had a brief stint as a Top 40 station (and a 
pretty good one at that) during the late '60s - early '70s, didn't reach into our neck of the woods very well at night, nor did WORC or WAAB.
