Question

Two 1-MHz radio antennas emitting in-phase are separated by 900 m along a north-south line. A radio receiver placed 2 km east is equidistant from both transmitting antennas and picks up a fairly strong signal. How far north should that receiver be moved if it is again to detect a signal nearly as strong?
