RE: Re: Power Increase Beyond Class of Station
There is a "synchonous" setup at 92.1 FM where WPHX (Sanford ME) and WFEX
(Peterboro NH) do battle here in Derry (though 'FEX does seem to come in
better than before...did Mindich do anything to the 2 92.1s
(BTW 95.3 is a "antenna turner" here in Derry where I can listen to 'HRB or
'UBB depending on direction)
