Fwd: WOTW at night

I'm the person requesting that people living in the Merrimack Valley or
southern NH check out WOTW at night.  Dave's experience matches my own...
namely that WOTW starts to overcome the 900 interference from La Canade
on rt 93 as you approach the mighty Merrimack River.  Dave headed west
where WOTW should  be expected to strengthen.  An interesting comparison
is WROL at night vis-a-vis the 950's in Philly and Utica.  At night,
when I travel north on rt 128 at the junction of 93, then head north on 93,
WROL's 90 watts sometimes is no match for the interference from these
other stations, whereas WOTW seems to have a steady and reliable signal 
late at night (it's just after sunset and until 7:00 pm in December
that it seems to receive the most intereference;  maybe some other 900s
in the USA stay on with pre-sunrise/post-sunset power then go off two houra after
local sunset).

I don't recall who was asking about WOTW night broadcasts, but just for
chuckles I tuned to 900 Wednesday night/Thursday morning on the way home.
 From Kenmore Sq to about Wilmington/Andover I was hearing an old Jack
Benny show through the hash with a talk show fighting to come through, 
from Andover to Lowell the talk show (Point of View) was coming in very
well.  I did not hear a top of the hour ID but I did hear USA Radio
sports.  I believe WOTW uses the USA Radio Network.
