Default Re: FM signal boosting

Some UK outlying VHF/FM stations had a receiver with an antenna aimed at a main station. This was either used as the source for rebroadcast, or as a back-up if the minor station's audio feed went down.

I wonder what sorts of distances were covered?

Of course, both antennae would be on tall masts, but the poor receiver would be very close to transmitters banging away in the same band.
