15 miles sounds correct, depending on where you pick the center of Boston.
From the same point,the Needham towers and Great Blue Hill is ~7 miles.
Aside from WKAF being class A, the big
difference between GBH and Needham is antenna height, as there are no
enormous towers on
the hill. WKAF is ~2kW @ 173m while most of the Needham stations are ~10kW
WMKK is 34kW @ 178m.
So if MKK pulls a larger audience than AAF/KAF, do you abandon the more
popular station in exchange
for a bigger signal?
