Mr. Numb Nuts said: “That may not be entirely true. There are folks on this site that have ground mounted antennas, with a ground radial system that achieve the 1 mile coverage area.
Mounting AM transmitters high to achieve greater range has more to do with long radiating interconnects than the actual antenna heights. There are no AM radio staions with elevated antennas. They are ground mounted.
Now on FM, that would be a different story.
