I heard the original call on the Cromwell LTR system ( talkgroup 1-05-179 ) from here in Milford (I have it recorded too) and a little over a minute later I heard the blast from inside my house. I am on Long Island Sound in Milford so I guess the sound came right down the water.
I would never believe it if someone told me they heard it that far away!
I was scanning the Cromwell system by coincidence because I programmed several trunked systems in my BCD396XT and I was also trying out a new program which logs the scanner audio and the radio information at the same time (scanner recorded pro). I heard the call and at the time of course didn't know how big it would become. I heard and felt the blast here a short time later, but again at the time didn't know it was related.How did you hear the call before the blast?
