The analog audio itself on WTIC does come in pretty clearly after dark
in Rochester.   But go maybe 15-20 miles east and it gets almost
unlistenable.   In Geneva you can barely get WTIC's skywave at all,
and only in very specific spots.   This was a major bummer when I was
making the majority of my trips from Geneva-Boston and back in
September and October of 2007.
