This inspires a burst from my rapidly-declining memory bank:
several years ago a friend of mine got married, and shortly
thereafter moved to Ahlington. AM 590 was WEEI then, a talk station
with CBS news on the hour. As I was driving to his housewarming,
I had WEEI on and noticed it started to sound like a SW station
as I neared his house. Right in front, WEEI was almost inlistenable. I assume some kind of signal strength
device might DISPLAY a usable signal, buy if John
wanted to hear WEEI, he probably had to find a room that
wasn't in the deepest null...I forgot to ask.
