Are you sure it hasn't been repaired or replaced? I've been 
getting WCAP quite well here in Somerville at night lately,
very listenable, with WOFX far in the background most of the 
time. It sounds like the old 5000 watts to me here.

The day pattern is weaker here, but there's no co-channel 
signal in the background to compete with it in the daytime.
