I think Buckley sells ads on WSNG separately from WDRC. That would be 
impossible with a synchronous transmitter.
A power increase for WGIR would cause prohibited overlap with WVMT.
I think you will find that WIP is hopelessly boxed in. Any attempt to 
change its operation would run afoul of the ratchet rule and would 
necessitate reducing its coverage! You didn't mention it, but the 
recent deletion of 610 in Winchester VA does not allow any station 
that might want to upgrade to do so.
