The reason for WRCI's improved signal is a vast increase in antenna HAAT.
Until a couple years ago WRCI's antenna was essentially on a telephone pole
along side of Rte 202-9 in Hillsboro.  It's now on top of Craney Mt, next
to Pat's Peak. I think in the 80s when 'RCI signed on there were FCC regs
prohibiting city grade contour overlaps between co-owned stations (in this
case WJYY), when the rule was repealed, for obvious reasons the antenna was
moved.  At the old site WRCI didn't even cover Hillsboro very well.

Why do we want as good of a signal as we can get? Duh!
