Most of the Albuquerque New Mexico TV stations broadcast from atop Sandia Peak, elevation 10,664 ft. and theoretically if you are on one of the mountain peaks south of Albuquerque you can get line of sight to these stations.
I ran a TVFool report from the top of Sunset Peak (33 deg. 35 min. 07.35 sec. N/ 105 deg. 14 min. 06.98sec. W) shows LOS to KASA-TV RF 27 (2.1) effective power 380kw with the NM (db) at 29.6, so if you can find a place where you can get LOSat 150 miles or even 200 miles you should get 24/7 reception with a decent antenna, but such occurrences are very rare.
For "normal" situations, of course the major factor in reception is terrain (if a hill blocks your reception the signal drops precipitously), second factor is probably local blockages such as trees (especially conifers) and structures. Third is distance where your signal level is inversely proportional to the distance from the source (double the distance=1/4 the signal).
The biggest impediment to reception a 150 miles is you are so far over the horizon that the tower and your antenna must both be very high with much lower terrain between to get reception as in the case of the Albuquerque area. I am not aware of transmitters anywhere else in the US that are located so high.
