    Let me see if I can clear this up.
    That was extremely informative.
    I cannot believe how you were able to come up with all of that in just a few very short minutes.
    You even brought 640, 1520, 1700, and 107.1 onto the table.
    Thank you.

    BTW...If any talk format was carried on 107.1, it was only on a digital sub-channel.

    Actualidad-ly, with their complicated directional patterns, I am not sure whether 990 is as good as, or better than 1210 at night, but the later definitely has the day advantage, if we include Broward county.

    Sorry for adding to the confusion, but how could they change the COL from Boynton to Miami on 1040? The 1040 signal doesn't get anywhere near Miami, especially at night.

    The 1040 transmitter site is moving from Palm Beach County to the WMYM 990 site in west Dade near the turnpike.

    1020 is moving from the Redlands area to the old 1040 site in Palm Beach County

    990 is moving from the west Dade site to the old 1020 site near the Redlands

    Whew!

    The 'new' 1040 will run 50kw day and 5k night providing strong coverage of Miami and Fort Lauderdale day and night.

    1040 is the signal benefiting the most from this move, the others will be strongest within their respective counties.

    I do not believe that any stations physically moved.
    A Miami station changed frequencies from 990 to 1040, without moving one meter.
    One in Kendall changed from 1020 to 990, without moving.
    A third, in Boynton Beach, changed from 1040 to 1020, without moving.
    These were all frequency changes, not geographical moves.

    The daytime map you refer to shows useful coverage much of Broward and the portion of Dade north of Kendall .

    At night, the coverage will be much of the eastern populated part of Broward but nearly none of Dade.

    Given the man-made noise level in Miami, a 10 MV/m signal is needed to be usable on AM. The innermost radio-locator contour is 5 MV/m. And at night, the co-channel interference on that facility will likely make the usable coverage to all be well inside Broward County.

    Of course, that facility moved to a different frequency while the 1040 station moved to 1020 in Miami at the same site where the previous occupant of 1020 used to live. It will be a good Miami signal, but not so good for Ft Lauderdale.
