You don't even need special antennas to pick up that many signals in 
Millinocket.  WQCB, WVOM, and most of the Bangor FMs come in like locals.

If we go back thirty years, when AM was king, WSYY would have been pretty 
much the only game in town during the day.  The Lincoln AM would have came in 
well and you could probably get 620 and 950 out of Bangor on a good radio but 
that would have been it.
