I'm surprised you get a decent signal on 1540 in NYC...I thought they were
directional NE.  The signal drops off real fast heading west...it's gone
by the time you get to Amsterdam.  I'm surprised their day pattern isn't a
bit looser...isn't the station they're protecting the 1540 in Iowa, or
does 2nd adjacent WWKB (then WKBW) factor into it as well?
