FM E-Skip reception 7/15/06
Sun Jul 16 07:09:21 EDT 2006
I was in the Calais, Maine area yesterday, and while enroute back home to
central Maine I picked up an Iowa station fading in and out on 90.9. The
same thing happened a few days ago on 91.7. I didn't catch call letters on
either occasion, unfortunately, but in each instance there were references
to local Iowa goings-on.
This isn't a terribly unusual occurrence during the summer; I've gotten
WOI-FM in Ames, Iowa, on several occasions in the past. I agree with
Richard: there are times when it's fun (surprising to find what you can pull
in!) and times when it's annoying (when you're intent on listening to, or
watching, a particular station).
