Since Tom O'brien has basically taking over WSMN, the it appears some
engineering work has taken place. Prior to this past summer/autumn, WSMN
was the pits at night in Derry, but I could hear them okay in North
That indicates to me a poor ground wave and good skywave due to a bad
grounding system at the transmitter.
Now WSMN is dominate at night, not just in Derry, but points beyond.
