I'm sure the signal path from San Diego to Santa Barbara being mostly over water helped in receiving KZSB 1290. It's still pretty cool being able to pick up a 0.5 kW station at almost 200 miles during the day.

I'm sure it made a huge difference. In San Bernardino there's a co-channel 95 miles away that sends 6.5 kW toward me with its DA, but on an all-land path with a conductivity around 4-8 mS/m. If I turned the radio the right way I could maybe get a trace of KKDD buried under KZSB.
Also I'm about 15 or so miles inland. On the beach using that GE, I'd think that if it weren't for splatter from 1kW 1280 KFRN in Long Beach, you'd think KZSB was a local.

I'm not aware that anyone ever thought the AM performance of the GE Superadio 3 was "garbage", although many commenters have excoriated the version put out by RCA.
