WRPQ at 6 watts you have to mean locally hearing that and 740AM Canada! 6 watts can't cover more than a few miles when being pounded by the 740 Canadian powerhouse.
Yes, local listening. We also have relatives between Reedsburg and Lake Delton. Depending on season, time of evening/night/morning, and weather conditions, never know what you get on the AM in that area between 740 Baraboo and the mighty 740 Toronto. WRPQ has no presence up in the Sparta - West Salem area at night, totally 740 Toronto... Which is actually a good listen online or in the car or on a radio! https://www.zoomerradio.ca/ One of the best nighttime DX signals I would have to say for many many years, even now. Quite a change from when back in the day I remember "Radio 740, CBC, Toronto." This was actually the station and frequency that I DX'd for the first time as a youngster. Hearing a station from so far, and from another country, I thought I was doing something illegal like messing with ON-TV or Spectrum. (Anyone remember that?!?)
