Another Midwest station heard at Lista in October 2008 was CHSM in Steinbach, Manitoba. Manitoba stations are rare at Lista, so we were quite pleased about logging these at our location in Southern Norway. CHSM broadcasts from the agricultural heartland of the Canadian prairie and many of its programmes are targeting the agricultural community (according to their programme schedule, they even have funeral announcements on air – now that’s local radio!)
Laverne Siemens, Director of Engineering at Golden West Radio, confirmed my reception of CHSM with an e-mail with a Word attachment today. He adds that CHSM broadcasts with a power of 10 kilowatts. The transmitter is a Continental Electronics 316F and is located near St. Pierre, Manitoba (35kms SSE of Winnipeg).
