Coverage - 99.5 vs. 102.5 which is "better"?

102.3 (WWHK) begins to interfere with 102.5 in the Northern 1/2 of
Manchester. Once past the Hooksett Tolls, the bleed all but wipes out 102.5

Now, except for the "dip" in 93 at the Bow-Concord line, 99.5 can be heard
reasonably well almost to the Lakes Region on 93 and to the Warner area
heading North(west) on 89.

NHPR doesn't play much music (though you are correct that they have a
full-serve signal at 99.5 in Jackson)

I was at a breakfast/lunch restaurant today and they had a TV playing
CNN. After some kind of feature they put up a slide, "Brought to you
by Boston's Classical Station
WCRB 99.5". Got it right!

If you drive into parts of NH, it's not uncommon to hear classical
music on a 99.5...
doesn't NH Public Radio have a signal up there in Jackson?

As for WKLB: A week or two ago I was in Nashua/Derry/Windham NH and
the 102.5 signal was pretty solid though of course once you get near
the 102.3 in the Concord area
you'd have some trouble picking them up but there's always WOKQ etc
