KFI, KNX & KNBR are usually good bets here during sunrise.  KNX has a traffic sounder on the 5s which really cuts through the noise.  1680 KNTS in Washington is another good bet and often heard here just before they reduce power.  1040 CKST in Vancouver is another good one to try for with ESPN programming that sometimes overtakes WHO here.  The last week of October is particularly a good time to catch far western states just before they power down.
