100 kw ERP from the master antenna on Empire (1454' AAT) would actually be
just about a minimum class C facility, which gets you a primary-coverage
contour of about 52 miles.
The inverse-square rule will get you every time...you're only looking at,
what, a 6 or 7 dB improvement on the existing full-B signal?
