QSL: CJYM Rosetown SK 1330


For those DX-ing from Arctic Scandinavia, CJYM in Rosetown, Saskatchewan, is a common catch on 1330 kHz. For those DX-ing from Southern Scandinavia, however, catching the signal of stations located so far west is much more difficult. On the October 2008 DX-pedition to Lista,  CJYM was heard with a pretty good signal one night playing mostly hits from the 70s and the 80s.

Laverne Siemens, Director of Engineering at parent company Golden West Radio, confirmed my reception of CJYM with a full detailed QSL letter as a Word attachment.  He says CJYM broadcasts at 10 Kilowatts 24 hours a day with a Continental 316F transmitter operating into a two tower array with the same directional pattern day and night.

My very first QSL from Saskatchewan!
