Re: AM radio very much alive during WV floods, and necessary.

I see that, looking at Radio-Locator, and in my direction the WHP signal seems to crap out by Johnstown, still a good distance and over the mountains from me. I see at night they beam hard towards Lancaster, which might be one case where a station's night signal is better than the day at least if you're in Lancaster. I guess the hard beam is to protect 580 Windsor/Detroit, which I regularly hear at night, not strong but in there and dominant, playing classic American Top 40 shows.

I don't know if I have a better shot of getting WCHS or not, it looks like their fringe is about the same distance from Pittsburgh as WHP's is. I went out this afternoon for a check with a Superadio I and got weak talk where I could just tell it was a voice, on a pulsing signal. More gain and a sync detector could help, or I can try a Superadio III.
