WVMR Coverage Area

WVMR is located in Pocahontas County, in the southeast portion of the Potomac Higlands of West Virginia. There are no other radio or television stations in the county, and WVMR provides a much needed service to the population settled in these hills.

The coverage map below was generated from data collected in 1985, when WVMR made measurements of the ground conductivity in support of an application for increase from 2,500 watts to 5,000 watts. The station reaches the south and north fairly well, but the high mountains to the east and west cause the signal to fade less than 40 miles from the transmitter at Frost.

In May of 1995, as part of a long term expansion, WVMR built two new FM stations in adjacent Highland and Bath Counties, Virginia. WVLS, Monterey and WCHG, Hot Springs, provide WVMR programming during the daylight hours, and then bring local programming to each of their listening areas after dark. As the volunteer base for these stations grow, so will the program schedule.
