Reception of them at this location has always been sporadic.  Only about 110 miles away and no other
competition on the frequency anywhere near close by but their signal if readable at all is usually weak.
May be on account of the poor soil (sandy) conductivity in that part of the state.
You probably get better reception as their signal propagates across the Lake.
Anyway, haven't much listened to them, sounds like mostly political blather.
