your logic doesn't make sense. IF you have a 100 mile radius, the energy would radiate in all directions equally (theoretically) without obstructions. Such energy is distrubuted radially, not longitudally. A receiving station must be within such a limit from the transmitter.

100 square miles is NOT the same as the area of a circle with a radius of 100.

The area of a circle is Pi R^2. Pi is 3.14..... and R being 100.

So therefore 3.14x100x100=3.14x10000

and you get a coverage area of 31,400 miles of coverage

What need therefore would there be for more base stations? All you need is two with intersecting areas.
