        If it's running 10 kW, non-DA, why would the signal go so much
farther west than southeast? West also is closer to Montreal, where the
main interfering signal is coming in from. Listening on the South Shore,
the Canadian station was on top of WEEI. And there's a station in
Cleveland, also, I believe. I understand that there probably would be some
locations where 10 kW would be more signal than the DA generates (like
whatever location prompted someone to start this thread). And west would be
one of  them, probably. But it's the comparative signal strength in the two
directions that has me wondering about your comment.
