This is a regional signal, reaching from North of Lexington to the WV line at Inwood. The signal is for the most part constrained by the Appalachians to the West and the Blue Ridge to the East. We also have a good shot at portions of Hardy County, WV and most of the Lost River Valley. We do have listeners in Culpepper and Nellysford (where there's a will, there's a way).

As you go north, interference from WETA (90.9) and WJYJ (90.5) may become a problem. Our Winchester listeners can also tune in at 94.5 to our translator W233AA in locations where interference is a problem.

Multipath is a problem for some listeners who may get more reflected signal from the mountains than direct (esp. noticable in Shenandoah County where the Valley is narrow). Try a directional antenna!
