Yup, by 2:25am Monday morning, “Big City 101.3” was no where
to be heard at the South Station postal facility (or—later
confirmed—anywheres up on the North Shore)...just Bob B.ʼs W267CE
(w/Milfordʼs W267CD mixing in, up on the North Shore)!
Back in March, I got the Sangean DT-160 AM/FM Pocket Radio, with
good sensitivity, excellent (even adjacent channel) selectivity
and SUPERB(!!!) image overload rejection:  While all of the other
radios at South Station were “image wastelands” on FM due to the
Pruʼs FM stick, the DT-160 had absolutely NO imaging whatsoever
(even in the all-window cafeteria facing the Pru) except, maybe,
very, very, VERY slight (and I mean to the point of not really
being able to distinguish from the background noise floor!)
“image hash” at the very bottom of the dial (87-89 MHz), as well
as maybe an extremely weak image at .2 MHz above (and below?)
the Pru signals (e.g., 100.7➜100.9)—though easily overtaken by
the slightest bona fide on channel signal!....The biggest gripe
I have with the DT-160 is its about .6-.9 sec. frequency change
What this means is—besides getting the Cape, RI, Worcester and
SEʼrn NH to varying strength as regulars (as well as any tropo
from ME to CT to LI/NYC {have already logged CT-95.7 and LI-97.5
a couple of times} and probably even further)—all of the (even
Pru adjacent channel) Boston area pirates are receivable at
South Station!

(I was off last night, and the night before I didnʼt hear
anything on 100.5, but I will most certainly check tonight)
