Must be directional south, because it isn't a killer signal here in central
Maine. However much WZAN's predecessor WCSH may have touted itself as "The
Super Station" in its early years,  WGAN's signal has always been much
stronger within Maine itself.  Inland. 'ZAN begins to trail off after
Augusta.  'GAN can be heard all the way to Bangor.
