“I doubt that 100 watts on 1510 at night would get them more than 10 miles or so.” Seems about right. That should be about the same as WJDA’s 72 watts on 1300:
The FCC yesterday approved the sale of WBIX to the International Church of the Grace of God – possibly complicating this.

No sign of them yet but I’m on the North Shore. Since the STA is for a daytimer for now, they should get on by sunset tomorrow. Maybe it’s out there but nobody has reported hearing them yet.
Some of the oldies folks from before have been saying they’d be a part of it–Jimmy Jay, maybe Jim Callahan, also Joe McMillan.Awhile back someone told me Jimmy Jay would be doing oldies shows there but “keep it quiet for now”.
Jimmy Jay’s facebook:
“One year ago tonight we did the last music show on WMEX. Today I’m Happy to say WMEX is coming beck. We will be doing test broadcast this weekend then shutting it down till the week of September 18. I will be the midday WMEX Good Guy on the air from 9 AM – 1PM Everyday. Yea WMEX Good Guys are coming back and I am proud to say I am one again.”

The low power test broadcast of 1510 WMEX is on the air! A VERY weak signal here in Somerville, rebroadcasting 95.9 FM WATD in Marshfield.
—- Could be the 100 watt night signal. Probably the easiest and quickest thing to set up.
Another STA app today for 2 KW days and critical hours, 100 watts nights:
