WHAI 98.3 & WMUA reception

When I would drive from UMASS to home in CT back in the late 80's,  
there were occasions when all three 98.3's would battle it out as you  
drove down 91 from Holyoke all the way down to the CT line.  Normally  
WHAI would completely disappear once you were south of Springfield,  
but during trop openings it would last sometimes as far as the Bradley  

A couple of times I've been able to pull in WHAI on 84 around  
Manchester.  Bolton Notch can null out WILI-FM enough to allow WHAI to  
come in (weakly, but there) when conditions are right.  In that area  
WHAI is an easier pull than WDAQ.
