I've picked up WJIB on it's 5 watts in Lowell on some Summer nights in the 
past. I've also heard 740 Toronto dominate WJIB's 5 watts on I-93 North 
coming out of the Tip O'Neill Tunnel on Winter nights. I've read somehwere 
(probably in a post here perhaps) that low power AM signals tend to go 
further in the Summer then Winter.
