I've noticed the same thing regarding WNRB.  They come in suprisingly
well there since WNLC-New London went off the air.  I'm not too suprised
about WBLM beating out WDRC-FM.  There is a null around Bozrah around
Route 2 which makes many Hartford signals very noisy or totally inaudible
in Norwich.  However, Rhode Island and even Cape Cod stations blow in
regularly, so if there was a bit of trop, WBLM coming in would not be too
much of a suprise.
