Good catch! In downtown Salem, I usually only get WINS during the daytime,
though with the shorter days I can usually receive CHTN if the Sun is quiet
enough. I have yet to get Newfoundland.
If it weren't so bitterly cold lately, I'd walk to the bridge to hear for
myself. At home, I'm surrounded completely by concrete, so I couldn't say
if a wet ground matters. :(
I miss CHSJ, too.
