That was one *powerful* TIS station.  After it moved
to 105.1 it must've increased power, because it is
audible all the way to Batavia NY, at least 40 miles
away.  A point of clarification from the email above:
travelers information was broadcast on 105.1 for a few
years in the early part of this decade before moving
to AM 710 where it resides today; it was not a
simultaneous FM frequency move and change to the AM
frequency.  I still remember how surprised I was at
how well 105.1 got out for a TIS, and thought it was a
total waste of a good FM signal.  In my opinion,
moving a music format to 105.1 and the TIS to AM 710
was a very wise move for the people that owned these
