Plus, don't forget about WWYZ/Waterbury and WLNG/Sag Harbor from the  
west and south, respectively.  Those stations always gave me fits when  
I tried to pull in PRO-FM growing up in Colchester, CT.  I never had a  
problem recieving WHJY or WSNE since there wasn't much short-spacing  
issues on those stations.

Ironically, I believe Colchester is Paul's hometown as well....
