A Retro newspaper report from March 8th noted that there would be a monthly cycle of flares of various intensity eminating from any area on old Sol in various directions so I guess we don't get hit by all of them but if one heads in this direction or better yet on a trajectory ahead of the earth and happens to arrive just as the earth arrives in the same location in orbit. I can't remember the velocity but at a million miles an hour it would take about 4 days to get here. Correct me if my numbers are off the mark.
Is WWKB playing music again (oldies)? Didn't that extemely directional station change from top 40 to another format along with a juggle of call letters some years ago? As WKBW they were my # 1 station back in the 60s when I lived in NB and had the strongest signal there at night ( I caught the late night DJ Joey Reynolds mention that a listener in Scandinavia heard him), and would be audible without any kind of assisting antenna daytime on cold winter days. Later on in Toronto I tuned them in but was disappointed that their footprint north across Lake Ontario sounded like something resembling 1000 watts instead of 50 Kw so I figured they pushed most of their power east and west.
