QSL: CKDO Oshawa ON 1580


CKDO in Oshawa, Ontario, is another easy catch and is easily heard on its frequency 1580 kHz. In fact it is very difficult to hear anything but CKDO on this frequency. The station broadcasts with a power of 10 kilowatts and was also heard very well on the October 2008 trip to Lista. CKDO has an oldies format, but also carries many sports events. When I heard and reported them in October, I heard them with live hockey coverage of the local team The Oshawa Generals.

I have had some trouble getting a reply from them, but today Shawn Smith sent me a very nice and fully detailed QSL card by postal  mail. I very much prefer such replies to e-mail replies, but email replies are of course the norm today.
