Seems better now-- I drove by the Randolph rest area
(which was temp. closed) and could still get it a mile
or so down the road, maybe even a couple of miles

They used to have several of these tied in to their
rest areas but got rid of them. Now they're back
as LPFMs.

Similar to what I've heard in New York State (audio
quality, etc.) and we even have some here in Mass.,
don't we? 530 AM, 1610 AM along Mass Pike (traveler's
info stations)
