Picked them up in my car in the driveway, no luck in the house.  Returned this week after two years off air, formerly WQUN.  Under reduced power (250 watts) their first week back, 12 miles as the crow flies from me.  Former 1970's WNBC DJ Dick Summer on pre-recorded hosting duties.  Very good reception on the driveway.
