Your location is at the left of this chart, and KNLJ is on the right side. I was very surprised not only to NOT see any ridge in your proximity, but also just how nice a spot you are in (terrain-wise) for DX to the NNE. By the way, KNLJ's antenna is over 1750 feet above sea level, and way beyond the top of this graph.
    KNLJ is a station I have NOT been able to receive yet. I have tried several times. You will notice terrain peaks out to about 20 miles and I *wonder* if they get in the way? I also have not been able to log KOMU 8 Columbia and KRCG 12/13 Jefferson City. All three of those stations are less than 130 miles distance. I just don't understand what is going on that direction that dx is so difficult.
