BROWN denotes a broadcast radius in which listeners may tune-in to WIXQ when
atmospheric conditions are favorable, and if listeners properly adjust one's antennas.**
*Please note that the radii pictured here are informal generalizations about the nature of WIXQ's signal, and are presented for whimsical graphical detail only. WIXQ's actual signal strength at any given distance from its broadcasting antenna depends on variables such as terrain, topography, atmospheric, conditions, the signals of other radio stations, the specifications of a listener's radio and antenna, and the quality of the tracking devices the CIA, FBI, NATO, and the UN may have planted under your skin.**The furthest confirmed FM listeners of WIXQ are from Reading, P.A., Coatesville, P.A., and Bel Air, M.D..
