WJIB's tower is not near the ocean, the closest water is Fresh Pond. But as 
Chris Hall mentioned in his post, the ground system was replaced with the 
four long copper rods deep into the soil. Apparently it works, as WJIB's day 
signal is listenable in my car radio in Lowell and is listenable in other 
places around the Greater Boston area.
