Seriously, I'm not entirely certain to what you are referring, but looking at some WV loops, it looks to be a pretty immense feederband...I could very easily be wrong though...

On the previous thread, a question was posed, which to rephrase would be: "how many miles (nautical or linear) are there to one degree of longitude?)" I know I have a link for that somewhere, but I'm not looking ATTM. Maybe someone knows off the top of their head...I think it's ~60 miles or so, but again, I could be wrong.
