WCOP (was ABC in Boston)

For sure that would have been the case at night. The daytime signal is
not great in that direction either but not horrible. The night pattern
primarily protected co-channels in Ottawa, St Johns NB (I think), and
Wilmington DE. The day pattern is simply a considerably relaxed
version of the night pattern with enough gain toward Boston to satisfy
the FCC. At the time WCOP was built, a Boston-licensed AM was supposed
to deliver 25 mV/m to the main post office. WCOP never did much better
than 15 mV/m and had to have gotten a waiver.
