Thanks, Mike. What you're saying appears to be that WGBH-FM will be running the equivalent of 100 kW at 150m HAAT. The 10.5 kW you mentioned for a B should produce coverage equivalent to 50 kW at 150m HAAT. Since 'GBH has been running 100 kW at a little more than 150m HAAT (roughly 25% more), 21 kW at 323m seems to represent a reasonably significant reduction in height-corrected ERP. To a first order, to maintain constant coverage as you vary the HAAT, you must reduce power in inverse proportion to the square of the HAAT. Thus, 100 kW at 187.5m should produce coverage equivalent to 156.25 kW at 150m. I wonder what the problem was with getting 30+ kW at 323m. -- Dan Strassberg, dan.strassberg@worldnet.att.net Phone: 1-617-558-4205, eFax: 1-707-215-6367 -----Original Message----- From: Michael P Fitzpatrick Jr. <fitzradio@the-spa.com> To: Dan Strassberg <Dan.Strassberg@att.net> Cc: boston-radio-interest@bostonradio.org <boston-radio-interest@bostonradio.org> Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2000 2:56 AM Subject: RE: Time to update at least one interesting tower site >On the FM 128 Tower , the top master antenna is, WBMX 98.5 and WCRB 102.5.. >ON the mast, near the bottom of the Mast, is WJMN. > >ON the actual tower, side mounted, at the top is WBUR. > >On the tower , on the side, a ways down, is WODS. > >Below WODS is a two bay ERI antenna which I can't find any license of who >owns/uses it but I am assuming it's just a back up antenna. > >WGBH-FM will be running 21kW from 323m AAT.
