Seems like with radio competition as the fundamental premise, then geography/proximity should be largely irrelevant to the gameplay, except for a bum-rush of the stations or pirate stations to seize the antennas.
Well, because then the gameplay would be ridiculous.
If you must, think of it as station popularity spreading by word of mouth from neighbor to neighbor. The fanatics are always scanning the airwaves, so stations have to boost power to the antenna temporarily to get noticed by them.
