An asset for planning how this could work for coverage can be found at https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/page?p=maps

You have to drill down to a state and then an individual station to view the actual coverage map.
Per the canon descriptions, each base has a 100 foot extendable tower, no mention of they can be retracted, but to my mind if would be useful, if only from a weather standpoint. This would also imply that it would possible to extend the last to shorter heights, useful from a security standpoint.
