As far as 130 miles go, I agree. The only station I can ever pick up 130(+!)
miles away is the
6200 ft superstar WHOM (music sucks, signal the balls) Heck, my '90 Volvo
can pick up WHOM basically "clean" to the beginning of the "lower deck of
I-93" at the Somerville-Boston line.

Now, if I was F-J, I'd try for a low power TX at 94.9 in Boston. (W235??)
