What about selling 93.5 to Zoo so that they could simulcast Revolution 93.5 on it? Then they could claim continuous coverage all the way from Jupiter to the Keys
However, with 93.3-FLZ to the north and 93X on 93.7 to the south, nothing exists over there on 93½,
so your experience is probably accurate.
I have seen so many stations making such small "improvements", that I had to encase that word in bold quotes.
The Call, WMKL took in lots of donations a few months ago to do that,
and now they bring many more alligators to Christ with a much better signal.

If you like music from the 60's or 70's, then 93.5 is the station. The signal has improved and can be heard traveling anywhere in Palm Beach County. Jay Zeger is the only local live DJ with the majority automated Scott Shannon. The only mention to Belle Glade is on the top of the hour legal ID, otherwise it is promoted as the true oldies channel for the Palm Beaches.
I disagree that the station can be heard anywhere in Palm Beach County. The signal is terrible in Boca. It isn't receivable on a Walkman in Lantana. There's static on Singer Island as well.
Have they been working on their signal this past week? Or having some transmitter problems? I've noted periods when they've been off the air. The signal does NOT seem to have improved, though. It's spotty when you drive through WPB on 95, but clearer in north county and into Martin County. They are a great addition to the local lineup, though!
This has been discussed pretty well in this thread (and others). Zoo is never going to sell their Fort Lauderdale 93.5 translator. Right now they have all the 93.5s from Fort Lauderdale into Miami and created a little radio network for themselves. Revolution Radio isn't going anywhere. Besides, translators must be local the the station they are translating. That 93.5 translator for Revolution/Zoo is in Broward and not local to WBDF. Sure, JVC could buy it, Zoo could sell it to them, BUT, JVC could not translate 93.5 True Oldies onto it.
Also, the 93.5 WBGF signal is improved and it's done. They moved 7 miles east. There is no more room to move or "boost" the signal, as they must protect 93.7 WGYL in Vero Beach. If JVC could have moved into DT WBP as a Class A at 3,000, they would have done that instead of remaining a Class C3 and only moving 7 miles, instead of 40 miles.
So, no more moving, no more "boosting" and no "translating" is happening for 93.5 WBGF.
As for the station being off the air. That could be the result of field testing for the new translator at 93.5 W228DO. This is the new translator, which put in a new application on 1/20/2017, for Jorgenson's WFLL 1400 AM. You can view the Protected and Interfering Contours Map and see 93.5 W228DO as it relates to WBGF 93.5 and W228BV 93.5 for Zoo/Revolution Radio.
