Considering that the theoretical limit, due to the curvature of the earth, is only around 30 miles, not likely.
The distance between points on the earth, the height of the transmitting tower and your receive antenna, and the frequency of the transmission, all factor in there....for instance, the radio Range of a signal is about 10% beyond what would be "line of sight" at most frequencies. The power of the transmitted signal, the gain of the receive antenna, and the (and, this is the modern-day bugaboo for indoor antennas) noise level of the receive location come in to play.
At 35 miles, you're not likely to get reliable signals except with at roof-top, or tower mounted antenna.
