not bad from 99 to 250 watts, in less than a year, even though strictly directional, WCTO should complain. funny how WRDV after years and years of trying, could not get past 20 watts to cover philly at 107.3 and this bold, new, move in can just bully the chicken FCC, and do as they please.
Bully what ? It’s just good engineering. WURD is a fill-in / AM translator which can go to 250 watts. WRDV is a whole different animal, it’s a non-commercial station with a translator on a commercial frequency. As such, they are limited to feeding the translator with an off air signal, and the power rules are entirely different. No way will they ever get 250 watts, the limit is much much much lower.
