I made a stop in Lynchburg, VA to do a dial scan while en route to Roanoke, VA in February 2016.  Roanoke and Lynchburg are interesting because in terms of TV signals, they are considered one market, being roughly 45 miles apart from one another.  For FM, however, they are different markets.  Except for a few of the stronger Roanoke signals, most of Roanoke’s FM stations cannot be received with reliable reception during deadband conditions in Lynchburg.  This is likely due to mountain attenuation between the cities and weak signals <1 kw.
