Who is listening to our flagship station and where are they located? Check the map for a location near you. If you don't see your spot, please let us know, and we'll add the information right away. Colored dots typically represent dozens, if not hundreds of reports, so city coverage is indicated.
How does this compare with the engineering predictions? Here is a map of expectations.
Our predicted service area (Longely-Rice) was based upon antenna height above average terrain, effective radiated power, adjacent-channel protection for other stations and terrain restrictions. Actual performance, well in excess of these depictions, was expected by the study engineers and has actually been reported in a variety of directions and locations. Terrain appears to be the most critical. Another critical issue is adjacent-channel interference. A strong "next-door" signal can also impact reception of the Radio of Hope flagship station at 91.1 FM in western Washington.
Service within the black contour line is the area of theoretically "guaranteed" interference-free reception under all circumstances. According to contract engineers "Acceptable" service (admittedly a highly subjective term) can be expected well beyond the protected contour into and beyond the colored-shaded areas.
