A recommended field intensity in a receiving point when FM stereo broadcasting (according to CCIR) taking in account such obstacles as elevations, buildings, etc. is ≈ 60dB/µV. The diagram from Federal Communications Commission, USA given below enables defining one value out of three: power, height and reception distance when having two known values. The diagram is built for the transmitter with a 100W power. Nevertheless it is possible to use the diagram when having other powers by changing values of reception levels by a dB value. Your power (in dB) differentiates from a 100W power in this dB value. Thus when having a 150dB/µV - 109 ≈ 41dB/mW ≈ 10W output level of a transmitter signal level lowers in a receiving point by 10dB relatively to the level provided by the transmitter with a 100W power. As far as the demanded reception level is 60dB/µV it is necessary to mark a 70dB/µV reception level on the diagram. It results in a 3km area coverage radius having the antenna height of 30m (actually it can result in a greater radius).
