All of the AM's I work with have much greater ranges than their
translators. Take, for example, Alex Langer's WSRO 650 AM. I was listening
to it in Lebanon, NH this morning. The FM translator is 40 watts, and
covers just Framingham and the immedtarely surrounding towns. Alex has a
CP to move it to Waltham and give it a modest power increase, but it will
never match even WSRO's nighttime coverage.
