I believe there is a Tampa area station that is on 760 with substantial power in the daytime, and less power at night with a directional notch to the north but it still causes considerable QRM to WJR at night when listener is in FL ! !!

I did some FM Dxing when I was in the FL Keys at Layton, few years ago. Heard miami stations every day. It was over 110 miles to the towers, one example was WXDJ , the antenna was up over 980 ft. AAT.
Using a little TekSun PL880 portable.

You should be able to get KTRH 740 out of Houston, TX. I used to pull them in when visiting my wife's parents in Fort Myers Beach.

I can hear ZNS in Nassau sometimes, right here in MI ! I can use my big SupreRadio portable with the big internal loopstick to null out KXEL in Iowa and can hear it thru the noise !

I'm in the Tampa Bay area right now. I've heard all of those listed in the first post. I'll take some time scanning around on my Sangean ATS 909, but not tonight. There is lightning tonight.
