QSL: CKDH Amherst NS 900


900 kHz was an interesting frequency on the October 2008 DX-pedition to Lista. One of several Transatlantic stations surfacing was CKDH in Amherst, Nova Scotia. Despite its location on the East coast of Canada, CKDH is not logged too often in Europe. I have never heard them before this DX-peditions, despite many DX-peditions to Lista over the years. The power of their AM transmitter is just 1 kilowatt though so that probably explains why CKDH is not hear more often.

Kurt Fawthrop at CKDH sent me a brief e-mail confirming my reception of the station today. CKDH plans to switch to FM so this station will be gone from the AM band pretty soon.
