How far away does WPHT 1210's daytime Imus signal go?

I'm curious how far away people can hear Imus on WPHT 1210 Philly.

It comes in fine in Columbus Ohio right now, using a Select-a-tenna
and a Sony 7600G portable receiver, leaning on a window.

Anybody farther away after sunrise, say in the 4th hour?

(Before sunrise, distance is better but less interesting.)

I can still usually pull in 1210 shortly after sunrise, but here in
SE MI we have a local on 1200 that contains this to a small window
of opportunity.  Signal's usually toast by about 9:00am, though per-
haps further out from Detroit I might have better luck.  We get Imus
on 1270 anyway, so by the time that 1210 is fading, the skywave in-
terference to WXYT is also, so I can switch over.

WLW does quite well in the daytime here, when the daytime local on
690 is not splattering too much.  This afternoon 700 was very strong.

C.K.

Well, WPHT goes at least 26 miles.
