Florida Keys antenna tower sites ??

WKIZ has a figure-8 pattern with almost all the power going east and west. 
There's a co-channel station in Santa Clara, southeast of Havana, which 
would wipe them out well east of Havana. And there are two first adjacents, 
SE and SW of Havana.  But it's possible they might be heard during the 
daytime along the north coast near Havana and points west. At night, they 
would probably be wiped out by WTOP.

The transmitter is located at the west end of 5th Street.
