Excellent reception

I did not expect to pick up our weekend-morning-only Oldies station (WMMW) 15 miles away before sunrise, but I did not expect to get sterling reception of anything else.  After a little research, I discovered the only station on 1470 am
near me with Rush Limbaugh scheduled at this hour is 5,000 watt day/ 43 watts night (per various radio websites) WJDY in Salisbury, MD.  Sunrise at my qth is 1115 utc.

1035 Rush Limbaugh talking about impeachment inquiry
1049 Limbaugh talking about Andrew McCabe
