That's really remarkable considering the weak signal WTAG sends
east.  One day, when the 590 frequency in Boston belonged
to WEEI then owned by CBS and all-news, I was driving south on the
Central Artery when WEEI went off-the-air for just about 10 minutes.
Instead of switching to another station like a normal person, I
tuned to 580 to observe how well WTAG was coming in in Boston,
and during that time the signal was barely audible at all.
I'm assuming its nighttime pattern protects 590 in Boston to
the same extent, so if someone in the UK can hear it at all,
he or she has a REALLY super radio.
