At 1845z I am getting a steady signal NW of my location FN42nn (15 mi north
of Boston). It is local ground wave with no QSB at present. I'm using a
K9AY loop setup and the signal peaks significantly on the NE loop. I am on
the ocean north of Boston (Beverly MA) so this direction is inland from me
towards NH. It seems like it must between W1FV and I but further north.
