No big surprise there. Much of Worcester is blocked from line of sight.

We don't do much better with the FM signals around here. IBOC is 
problematic, and we are on the hairy edge of analog reception from Pru and 
FM128 in many places. WBUR is unlistenable in many sections of town, and we 
have no local NPR affiliate. WGBH - at 100kW - is better in some places but 
still not very reliable.

I cannot believe the city hasn't opened up cable to competition from FiOS, 
cable overbuilds, or whatever.  Maybe this will be the trigger.  Oops, there 
I go again, thinking logically...
