Thanks for the clarification, LATA 128 covers more territory than I
would have expected. I was, admittedly, shooting in the dark
concerning Massachusetts LATAs as I moved south the year before the
AT&T breakup and so never had to deal with LATAs in New England.

I mentioned refraction, and a temperature inversion is one possible
cause. Another possible, and I would expect more likely in the case
of 'BZ, cause is extremely high humidity above the water in the
summer. In general, anything that greatly increases atmospheric
density along the microwave path can cause refraction. My experience
in the matter comes from my years in eastern North Carolina, where
microwave paths crossing coastal sounds and swamps are subject to refraction.
