        FWIW - *NO* radio station "turns up" their power at night. The ones you
hear are on frequencies known as "clear channel" - meaning that
lesser-powered stations either must urn down, or go dark at night. Less
interference means you can now hear them much farther than normal.

        To the best of my knowledge, 200kw is peak power, AM, or FM.

night than during the day - increased power is seldom one of them. Under
the right conditions, KFI's 50 KW is quite capable of skipping all around
the country.
