Apparently some of the 5kw Portland AMs throw a decent signal to the S-SW.
Some years ago, when I lived in Springfield, Mass. and worked at WHYN (560), we
went off the air one winter morning and we and faintly heard WGAN Portland.

I'm guessing WOFX, which runs sports and has a good ND signal daytime and throws
a solid beam due E at night.
