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

Wouldn't the issue for 99.5 actually be that it couldn't put a city grade
signal into Lowell if the TX was at the pru. (The reason 93.7 can come no
closer than Peabody with it's TX, to keep a COL signal into Lawrence)

What I don't understand is why these stations would follow the 107.3 example
(Moving COL from Worcester to Westborough) and move the COL as tight into
Boston as engineering could allow....

For example, moving 99.5 to the Pru would probably put it too
close to second-adjacent 99.1 WPLM Plymouth, first-adjacent
WSKO Wakefield RI and maybe second-adjacent WQRC 99.9 Hyannis.
