Driving home from work in Agawam, Mass. towards Westfield, Mass. listening
to WJMN in Boston at 94.5 over 50,000 1st adjacent WMAS here in Springfield.
Also I was receiving severe co-channel on 97.9 from WCPR in Wiggins,
Mississippi, over local WPKX. In fact on the mountain side from the
transmitter, where the mountain shadowed the signal, "979 CPR" came in
pretty clear! On the TV side, I have a small indoor antenna setup and I
picked up a ABC affiliate channel 11 from Raleigh/Durham. I could see the
logo several times and advertising for local stores but no legal. I am
assuming its WTVD? (FCC Query). This is always a tough time of year, which
do I listen to? My Radio, TV or scanner!
