What WAMC doesn't tell its Underwriters:
Lower power, weaker signals, 
less coverage than you thought!
Why is WAMC's coverage map so misleading?
For Underwiters paying top dollar to reach listeners, 
showing whole counties served 'in part' is disingenuous!
Compare coverage for yourself!

Claimed vs. Actual*

Why won't WAMC publish wattage data on its Web site?
(Isn't that what a Station Information Web page is for?)

Why is WAMC hiding its FCC 'service contour maps'
from underwriters?
Are underwriters reaching the audience they're paying for?
