Baseball radio in the Northeast

WEPN's much maligned signal does not really protect CHUM! WEPN's
signal toward CHUM is equivalent to ~10 kW ND. WEPN's primary
protections are to KYW and the Mexican border. CHUM's minimum
radiation at night is at 162 degrees true, somewhat to the west of
WEPN. At that azimuth, CHUM's night signal (if you believe it; I
don't) is supposed to be the equivalent of a little more than 1W ND!
(Not 1 kW--1W!.) The azimuth from CHUM to WEPN is 117 degrees true.
CHUM's night signal at that azimuth is supposed to be equivalent to
less than 50W ND. I think that CHUM's night pattern should be
augmented to make it agree better with reality. I suspect that CHUM is
the main co-channel contributor to WEPN's NIF. Even so, CHUM protects
WEPN but WEPN does not return the favor.
