What's nice is that you can listen to Coast To Coast AM on this station. And, since it's on-air 24/7, it makes for a great 49M propagation beacon.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Customarily sporadic reception here in South Central Wisconsin - not sure why as I'm only 434 miles from Toronto .  CFRX has always been a crap-shoot re: intelligibility of signal.
