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.
