While Manchester is New Hampshire's largest city, the seacoast market
(Portsmouth, Dover, Rochester, plus York County, ME) is a slightly larger
market than the Manchester, Concord, Nashua market (Source: M Street Radio
Directory). Also. the Seacoast market has less competition from the Boston
stations, especially the more northern parts of the market.
