QSL: CBT Grand Falls NL 540


Now that Belgium has left and Hungary doesn’t use the frequency at night, 540 kHz has become a frequency opening up for Transatlantic DX. During the October 2008 DX-pedition to Lista, 3 stations were heard on this frequencies: CBT in Grand Falls, Newfoundland, CBGA1 in New Carlisle, Québec and WFLF in Pine Hills, Florida. Of these 3 stations, CBT in Grand Falls Windsor in Newfoundland usually had the best signal. CBT broadcasts with a power of 10 kilowatts carrying regular CBC Radio One programming as well as  local programming and regional programming. Keith Durnford at CBC in St. John’s confirmed my reception of CBT with an e-mail today.
