Interactive coverage maps
 
I've been using the Interactive TV Coverage Browser here: http://tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=90, and have been looking at the coverage map overlay for each transmitter as described in the help: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_co...ask=view&id=67 (section "See coverage map for each station")

That's fine, in that I can see the coverage map for each transmitter. However the section also describes being able to hover over different transmitters in that coverage map to see details like transmitter power, compass direction, etc., in a pop-up balloon.

It's depicted in this image: http://www.tvfool.com/images/stories/station_detail.jpg

I cannot however see how to get a coverage map for multiple transmitters in such a way.

Is this map with several transmitters only available in Google Earth, or am I missing some button somewhere? Thanks

That image is for Google Earth transmitter icons, not Interactive browser.

Only Google Earth if you can get it to work; I haven't mastered it yet.

You can get coverage maps, one at a time as you have found out, with the Interactive browser. You can also get FCC coverage maps for any given callsign. For example, WTKR:
https://www.rabbitears.info/

Enter WTKR in Find: Call Sign box and click on search, which will take you here:
https://www.rabbitears.info/market.p...&callsign=WTKR

Scroll down to WTKR and click on Technical Data
Click on RabbitEars TV Query which should take you here:
https://www.rabbitears.info/tvq.php?...ms&facid=47401

Scroll down to WTKR Channel 40
Click on Longley-Rice Coverage Map, which should take you here:
