Re: WGY's relatively poor signal

Reason: poor ground conductivity.  There are maps of the US indicating ground 
conductivity.  Stations like the "mighty KOMA of Oklahoma" and KVOO Tulsa 
belt their signals all the way to the DATELINE.  KOMA drowns out the Pacific 
Northwest signals in the mid-Pacific.  KFBK Sacramento is in an especially 
good conductivity zone and has REGULAR listeners in Alaska and the Aleutians. 
 It can also be picked up in Polynesia, but its signal to the south and east 
is diminished by Baja.  East Coast stations are in very poor ground 
conductivity zones and the inability to throw the signal out is the result.
