When I was in the area in April, I was amazed that I couldn't get WDCD (nee
WPTR) on my car radio much west of Amsterdam.  WGY, on the other hand, came
in two-thirds of the way to Buffalo --- and it can be picked up very well in
Massachusetts all the way to Fitchburg and Worcester (WCRN tends to
interfere with it beyond there). -Doug
