Adequate coverage of the business districts of major cities by medium- or low-powered transmitters operating in the high-frequency end of the broadcast band has always presented a big problem to the broadcast engineer. This paper describes an auxiliary transmitter installation which was installed as a means of overcoming this handicap in Cincinnati, Ohio, where WSAI on 1360 kilocycles is located 10 miles from the business district. A special receiving antenna and a straight radio-frequency amplifier without detection is used to produce sufficient signal, after reradiation, to provide adequate service to the business area.
