Is WSRO-AM 650 Testing Its Modest Power Increase?

When a station gets down to less than 100watts.....doesn't that become a 
Part 15 issue?

But WSRO either has a CP for night power higher than 100W or has applied for 
night power higher than 100W. Can somebody say which it is (CP or app)? I 
don't remember seeing 187W but I think I saw 162W.

  They're only running 100 watts at night. On occasion, I've heard them at
  night on I-95 at the Mass/NH line. The signal's not really listenable, but
  it's there.

  In the daytime, however, they're quite listenable in Portsmouth.
