    93.7 fm in Fall River, MA

    I found this station which is WEEI-FM but heard Portuguese music instead this morning.

    97.3 is WJFD which plays music from Portugal/Brazil..

    Was 93.7 playing the same tunes ?

    1400 WHTB has a new license for a translator on that frequency, W229DC. Iím guessing itís on the air and thatís what youíre hearing.

    "WHTB-AM also broadcasts its primary channel from this additional transmiiter
    W229DC 93.7 FM Fall River, MA (250 watts)"

    So no protection for WEEI-FM down that way?

    WEEI-FM's signal is at the very tip of the "fringe" here
    https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/pa...EEI&service=FM

    They're licensed to Lawrence and broadcast from Peabody. Fall River is at the far end of their signal.
    Similarly, there's a translator at 103.7 in Boston. The map for the Westerly station at 103.7 shows the very fringe of their
    signal stops just short of Boston. No protection, and some southwest of Boston like in Norwood or Randolph could well
    get mixed stations between WEEI's RI home and the religious station on 103.7 in Boston (renew FM)

    B's are protected to the 54 dbu contour, about 32 miles out from the transmitter. That does not even get WEEI protection at the very NE tip of RI.

    Thanks for the clarification. I suppose any areas where there might be a signal conflict would be within WVEI's coverage area anyway, so no real reason to keep the radio on 93.7 if you start hearing Portuguese-language programming instead of sports talk in English. Finding it, though, would require some band scanning for folks from the Boston area driving through who are unaware of WVEI's existence -- providing they just don't punch up 98.5 and listen to the strong signal of WBZ-FM instead.
