Has 98.7 boosted their signal?

The bizarro atmospheric conditions are likely responsible for this.

The station has been broadcasting with 52 kW from 176 meters HAAT since late last year.

I see nothing in the FCC database authorizing any modification to the above specs.

I hope the excellent reception you noted continues!
C'mon iHeartRadio - do the RIGHT thing for once! Please cancel "Rover's Morning Glory" from WBFX in Grand Rapids.

So yeah... it went back to its old self for a while there, and then today I was in the woods a few miles south of Amasa... the Lions game (yuck) was on 93.1, so I gave 98.7 a try.

Clear as a bell once again.

Funny thing is that I was down in a river bottom listening to the radio in my old Jeep. I hope this anomaly rears its head during deer season!
