Today for the first time am receiving the above station broadcasting Covid virus info to community residents on 1710 kHz. Pretty good signal as I am in the western part of NJ, possibly they've upped their output, or band condx are excellent.

IIRC, read somewhere that they are currently on a STA which authorizes a power increase to 100 watts.

Hearing them again this morning about an hour before sunrise, a fair signal with a little QSB.
Using a portable this time, in the basement with just the internal loopstick for an antenna.

Making it to Indianapolis real time. Not perfect but backing the FR gain down a bit helps cut the noise.
