Excellent reception.  Notable on two counts - they just returned to the air after a hiatus, they are about 80 miles due west with maybe 1,000 watts of power.  Good to hear an AM is coming back on air.  I used to listen to them decades ago hoping school was cancelled due to snow.

Wow... the Climax Blues Band....I remember back when "FM Multiplex" was the new thing and CBB was one of those bands the tuned-in ones were listening to, along with Moby Grape and John McClaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra
