CFRX Toronto 6070 loud & clear
« on: May 25, 2018, 2029 UTC »
I occasionally catch CFRX Toronto...the SW transmission of News Talk 1010 AM.

My sources say they're pumping 1 KW. I can usually hear em but recently the reception here is gr8! Today 5/25 I had the best copy of CFRX so far. It was as if I were in Toronto.

If u guys are in the Gr8 Lakes region...or close by Toronto, it's been excellent copy.

Of course it was bad news today tho bcuz of that bombing in Mississauga. But gr8 copy of terrible news!

I had them about the same time you did 2015-2030 as I was spinning the dial.  I was surprised to receive them so early the afternoon - yes, same sad story on bombing.  I had always wondered if 1010am became a rights holder for a professional sports team's radio broadcasts, could/would they still broadcast over sw?
Tecsun H501x (broadcast received on this unless noted), Zenith T/O G500, Zenith T/O Royal 7000, Emerson AR-176, Zenith 8S154, T/O 7G605 (Bomber), Tecsun PL-600, Tecsun PL-880, Zenith 5S320, Realistic DX 160 using 40 feet of copper wire.  With apologies to Senator Gramm for his thoughts on firearms, "I have more radios than I need but not as many as I want."

Hmm that's a good question! I haven't listened a lot, just now and then. Good question. Lmk!

You kno what? I posted that around 20:00z BUT I neglected to mention... I actually had HEARD them early in the morning around 10:00z. Previously I had heard them around 13:00z

But right now they're coming strong on 6070. The same time YOU heard them. I'm new here and forgot to mention--when I started this topic I had heard CFRX about 5:00am--6:00am EDT...but NOW...22:04z...they're pretty strong. Getting a bit weaker as I type this
