So they go from one waste of that signal to another. With the value of FM signals in this market, why is Radio One wasting 2 of them?
That "wasted signal" (class A) has been a top 10 station (6+) beating the River 97.1, The Fish 104.7, and both country stations and a bunch of other superior signaled stations. How many class A's are top 10 (6+) in the top ten markets? Demographically, I would guess the typical Urban Gospel listener has more spendable income, (except for night clubs and alcoholic beverages) the your Rap / Hip Hop listener.
Excuse me? I was not calling 102.5 a wasted signal. I was calling the 102.9 translator simulcasting 102.5 a wasted signal since it basically covers the same area as 102.5. But as Barry pointed out, the 102.9 signal goes farther east, helping the station cover such places as Stone Mountain and Lithonia.
