The recommendation is, I believe, Wide3-3 in Montana.   Believe me -
it's needed.  I spent a couple days there last month and after driving
all day I had TWO stations in my heard list on the D700..

If the Babb, MT, station can get a link to SWT on East Butte (Mt
Royal) in the Sweet Grass hills, he'll have a little activity and a
connection to some other Montana stations.
