Speaking of stations in the 13's...at one point on the
Mass Pike eastbound, one can see the topmost lights
on the towers of WORC 1310 am COL Worcester, xmmtr
Auburn, Mass.  Most nights when I've tuned in to the
frequency at that point there's nothing but a jumble 
of stations on that very crowded wavelength.
