On February 17, 2021, The Q90.1 has been authorized by the FCC to boost power of our signal to reach more people in Worcester County.
The city of Worcester and surrounding areas better serviced with a more reliable signal. This will allow The Q90.1's mission to further connect people, churches, businesses & communitiestogether with the love of Jesus Christ.
THE Q90.1's COVERAGE NOW
In 2014, The Q90.1 had to move it's antenna location from Bay Path School to another tower site in Chartlon. Because of that move, we lost some coverage.
We currently service the red area the best, however there's some interference.
The purple areas are where The Q90.1 comes in, but it's not reliable in some areas.
Overall, our current coverage is interferred as much as 73.77%
The current tower we are on obstructs our signal with debris located on the tower.
Currently, our strongest parts of our signal in the red, reaches 118,670 people.
THE Q90.1's COVERAGE ONCE UPGRADED!
The Q90.1 is planning on moving to a new tower location that will better suit the needs of this radio ministry. This will accomplish many factors.
We will be broadcasting on a much higher tower to help our signal get over the Worcester hills. We will increase 123 meters!
We will jump from 120 watts of power to 250 watts of power!
The new coverage is interferred much less at 33%
The strongest parts of our new signal will reach
403,792 people. (nearly 4x increase)
