WCRN AM 830 Worcester MA playing an Oldies format...  never logged this one here in Michigan before last night @ 0305Z.
The 830 spot is usually dominated here by 50kw WCCO Minneapolis MN.  However, last night
WCRN was completely covering WCCO (albeit, there were several deep fades during which the
MN station could be faintly heard).  WCRN is also 50kw but what makes the strong reception here so
unusual is that their nighttime pattern mostly warms up the Atlantic Ocean being beamed directly from me.
Anyway, enjoyed listening to the Oldies for about an hour.

If you try in a month, you might just hear the Red Sox, they are an affiliate.  WCRN prevents me from receiving WCCO.
Nice catch.
