Skip OK to MD 1400 UTC 31 July 2014

Picked up a very strong dx on 88.5 MHz from KZTH in Piedmont, OK.  Was strong enough to drown out WAMU on 88.5 MHz.

My QTH was Frederick, MD and rx was on a stock car radio(!)

Was quite a surprise as WAMU is usually weak until I'm out of my garage, and this was coming in at S9.  The announcers were unfamiliar too but when they started talking traffic reports for OK city that clenched it.
