I picked up 1340am driving down 95 in Avon, Ma/Brockton area. I started picking up 1450am when I was closer to Providence. I still got both stations when I was staying in Newport. This was back around 2002 when both stations used to carry Classic R&B format from ABC Radio Network
How was the reception in the Avon and Brockton area on 1340 WNBH? You must have had static. If not, that's a darn good radio. I get static on 1450 WLKW just driving in Johnston, RI, a few miles away from West Warwick, RI. It does not even scan in Johnston. Also my car antenna is located in the rear next to the trunk, so engine noise would not have been much of an issue.
@Radiojay1, Yes, in Avon and Brockton area, 1340 came in perfect. I was in a Jeep Cheroke, yes, that radio must have been good. My former coworker lives in Brockton, he's the one that told me about those stations.
When I was driving around Newport, Ri, both came in (ok) 1450am faded in and out, while 1340am was better to get in that area. I could also pick up 1090am in that area (Newport, RI) (W I L D 1090am from Boston) The signal was (fuzzie) but you can still hear it.
