For a 5kW station that's directional south, they sure have a lousy signal.
They're essentially gone well before you get to Hartford.

While on the subject of 1250's, is Silberberg "accidentally" running WKBR
non-DA sometimes? Last I knew both day and night patterns included a very
deep null to the SW to protect WARE (and probably 1250 in Pittsburgh,
whatever their calls are these days)...this past weekend I heard them quite
clearly at I-495 & Rt. 2.  They disappeared about 1/2way to I-290.  Monday
morning I was not able to hear them there on the return trip.
