TX problems? They don't seem to have the range they used to.

Also the stereo pilot is back on.

Yeah, but the stereo really adds a lot of noise on the fringes with this format in this terrain. That may be why it sounds weaker there.

Also, the processing sounds a little more even. They still had that hot rock processing for months after the flip, giving the voices that booming, head-squishing sound.

94.5, whatever it's ERP, is a B1, which allows for 25kW@100M. So it should have a coverage area to match.

For comparison, WAMX 106.3 is also a B1, with a lower ERP, 1.6kW, yet (in a car at least) has solid coverage from Huntington to Charleston.

WAMX:

WVTS: (9.6 kW actually)
