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.
