While WEEI is definetely worse than WRKO in my neck of the woods, WBOQ is 
good on 104.9 to Manchester, and as you move slightly east, 96.7 (Forgot 
Calls) (Rochester) comes in well. WGAM/WGHM at least covers the Rte 3 
Corridor from Nashua to Manchvegas, and WTPL kicks in north of there.

-Derry NH (and now weekends in Freeport ME)......where one of those JAB 
stations (96.3) has the Sox......
