>From what I understand....WKLB 102.5 is the only one that took advantage of 
the ability to up their HD power.

WKLB-HD should come in quite nice almost everywhere.

I am an avid listener to HD radio, at home with my roof antenna, as well as 
in my car. But I do get annoyed from time to time at the lack of power that 
seems to be pushing these signals out. Driving around town in Merrimack, all 
the Boston (including stations not transmitting directly from the Pru) HD 
signals will fade in and out. It takes a ride down Route 3, almost to the 
Lowell Connector, before the HD signals become reliable. Do stations have 
the ability to raise the power on their digital transmitters?

On another note, some stations seem to have a better digital signal then 
analog signal. From my home in Merrimack NH, my roof antenna picks up a 
barely listenable analog signal of WSNE near Providence. But it always 
catches a full signal of WSNE HD-1, HD-2, and now HD-3. WBLM out of Portland 
is masked by WLLO-LP in Londonderry, but the HD signal always kicks in with 
no interruptions. What makes an HD signal travel farther then the analog
