That image is for Google Earth transmitter icons, not Interactive browser.
Is this map with several transmitters only available in Google Earth, or am I missing some button somewhere? Thanks
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:

Enter WTKR in Find: Call Sign box and click on search, which will take you here:

Scroll down to WTKR and click on Technical Data
Click on RabbitEars TV Query which should take you here:

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

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
