I can *barely* pick it up here in Massachusetts. My antenna is pointed slightly east-south-east for the Boston stations, so not directly at it. However depending on the conditions, I can get about 40 - 60% of the signal.

WMUR-DT channel 57 is at full power as far as I can tell, at 537 KW ERP.

Since you are in Weymouth you may be a bit too far. check a map. The WMUR -DT transmitter is very close to Manchester NH. In Weymouth you are probably quite a bit further than the normal 60 miles for UHF.

Do you currently get channels 9 and 11 which would reach you easier, at their lower frequencies?

I would estimate WMUR to just about reach Boston or Worcester at max range if your location is good. I know signal is good for me in Lexington, and I know it reaches Framingham too, but may not reach low spots there.
