Explanation of the FM (VHF) reception according to location

The list and the chart show the Swiss transmissions which could potentially be received in a location (Switzerland or the Principality of Liechtenstein). It is only intended as a guide and in no way guarantees the reception quality of such transmissions.
The list is based on a theoretical calculation of a reception signal strength of 60 dbµV/m at a height of 1.50 metres above ground for a distance defined according to the transmitting power and a 25 m resolution terrain model.
