    here is where the FCC thinks it is:

    I am kind of surprised they are heard in the ATL:

    even looking at the Radio-locator map I doubt you would pick them up @ spaghetti junction:

    If the FCC info is correct they have no horizontal power which (in theory) could limit non car pickup

    I agree with the reception problem near spaghetti junction. Smithboro is down near Eatonton. Could be a directional antenna that might be 180 degrees mis-oriented.

    2.9 KW @60 meters HAAT going that far requires something special in the terrain. IMHO the FCC site is wrong or someone has made "changes" not reflected in the FCC site.

    This station is operating under a STA to remain silent. The STA filling states, "station has been sold and will be re-located." Sounds to me like maybe it has a new owner who didn't bother to hire a consultant. Possibly didn't bother to file a FCC application.

    There is an application to transfer the license to a new group.
