Of the communities you listed, none appears to be in range of the 1240
signal from W Yarmouth. Previously, another poster had mentioned a
Portuguese-speaking community in Hyannis, which is definitely within the
1240 listening area. I can't remember whether that earlier post indicated
which flavor of Portuguese is spoken by the Hyannis community. Does anyone
remember? If so, please let those of us with short or defective memories

Also, will Langer's new 1410 signal (if and when constructed) cater to the
Allston Portuguese speakers? In Allston, the 1410 signal (to be located in
Readville and Licensed to Dedham) will be nothing to write home
about--especially at night. I think the 650 signal from Mt Wayte Ave will be
better in Allston (quite good by day, and assuming the just-applied-for
upgrade to 187W-N is granted and built, maybe listenable on good nights for
those who are determined and have decent radios).
