Consider the fact that KMSM/KUMR, the NPR school station at the University of Missouri - Rolla in the 1960's was a 15-watt FM station. Not a lot of coverage (the city) and fully licensed by the FCC and subject to needing an engineer with a first-class license to monitor the transmitter. I haven't checked the FCC data bank to see if they've upped their power since then -- I'm sure they have -- but it goes to prove that it doen't take a lot. The antenna and tower height will be as large a factor as transmitter power.
