Bro, good that you have the stones, the spirit and the money to free radiate at 97.7, but I'd advise you to put a good lawyer on retainer, just in case the fine folks on 97.7 a few miles west on Rt 17 have a few words with the FCC Field Office in beautiful downtown Buffalo and the G-Men take a drive to your fair city, wip out their field strength meters and antennas and knock on your door. As the overworked adage goes, "I'm just sayin'." Carry on... at your own risk.
Um....WENI is beyond miles west. I don't pick them up to about a few miles west past Owego.
