    No, that just started sometime yesterday: The first time I heard them, on the train, they sounded normal; this morning at 2:40am I heard them for the first time at the South Station PO, with the out of phase/distorted audio you described—it sounds like the IF image signal from a nearby radio (e.g., if someone is listening to 94.5, then there will be a muddy/bassy image at 105.2 on other radios in the immediate vicinity). They sound about, maybe, half as strong as Bloombergʼs 106.1 xltr, so they do get out!
    Interesting enough, at the same time, I heard a new, lower powered unLic pirate station on the frequency!

    Over in New Bedford/Fall River.

    Nothing on WSAR's page on Wikipedia on the FM Translator
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/WSAR

    Likewise on WBSM and WNBH

    I was under the impression that WVBF 1530 in Taunton was getting an FM presence as well.

    As of last night, it sounded like the audio phasing problem on the WROL translator was fixed, modulation level is better, but bandwidth still sounds limited, about the same as a clean AM signal.

    I'd think that a 95.9 translator for WSAR in Fall River would overlapping interference with WCRI Block Island, RI in areas of the MA/RI south coast. Though Fall River is outside WCRI's protected area, the WCRI signal hits the south coast well over the water.

    Yeah, they seemed to have fixed itóat least to the extent it is nowóby Monday night.
    That new (Spanish?) pirate on the frequency seems about as strong, almost mimicking the strength of the xltr, even in the post office, where the signals get absorbed to varying degrees by the building.
