Excellent reception in English.  A thousand watt station that's about 300 air miles from me, Radio-Locator.com indicates that its night time propagation shouldn't be more than 10 miles.

2240z ID, "the multi language station".  Explanations when other language broadcasts are scheduled
2242z Advertising opportunities, personal greetings for Diwali
2245z YL singer with subcontinent music in foreign language
2251z More music from the subcontinent with another YL singer
2255z Ad giving phone number with (514) area code, which is Montreal
2300z Owner/operator commercial with 514 area code phone number
2301z "You are listening to CHRN Radio Humsafar"

Hearing them on a Panasonic RF951 @ 0046 Shazam said the artist was Kshitij Tarey with the song Dhol Yaara Dhol  .
 They really get out .  Never strong here but fairly reliable
 @110 There is unid singing Hindi or Punjabi with ads partially in English and CHHA behind sounds to be Spanish. I believe they are multicultural as well
