It's all about calculating the right spot to hear what you want. In this case, I find that most of the results here are pretty common. You can compare with my other scans and maps as well. I have my old 2016 Lake Superior scan and my scan on the east shore of Lake Huron that I am updating to include maps for as well, as I find it is easier to appreciate with a more visual depiction as opposed to text for those who aren't as familiar with the stations and the location's of the towers.
