WBZ's signal in Springfield is fair to poor daytime, and even though the
signal strength is better at night, it's mostly unlistenable due to fading,
cancellation and now KDKA's sidebands. In a car with a vertical antenna it's
a little better at night. As long as AM digital has made a real mess of the
AM band, I figured why not see if I could pull out WBZ's digital signal near
Springfield, but no way. Now, I'm going to try the digital in Eastern North
Carolina, where WBZ's night signal is already very good.

WBZA, Springfield--please return!

WRKO's signal is very poor daytime and usually almost non-existent at night.

That's not clear at all.  I often found WBZ's night signal difficult
to listen to in Amherst when I was in college there in the 1960s.
I've also found it hard to listen to on the car radio while driving
home from there.
