How is the 101.9 signal? I'm in Ocean County, NJ and while NY FMs aren't usually receivable in homes, most can be received in cars. In fact, 101.9 penetrates deeper into Ocean County than 98.7, which has to deal with adjacent channel 98.5 in Ocean Gate.
We all know 660 AM has a huge signal, but it gets eaten up on secondary roads by overhead wires. 101.9 may be a bit shaky in northern and central Ocean County, but it won't be bothered by the buzzsaw from those wires.
My daily commute takes me to the Monmouth-Ocean border. The signals on both 98.7 and 101.9 improve the further north I drive.
WFAN got one of the best class B FMs in NY. It's closest adjacent channel is 102.1 out of Philly, unlike 98.7 which as mentioned has to deal with 98.5 in Ocean County.
