QSL: CKGL Kitchener ON 570

CKGL in Kitchener, Ontario, was a surprising catch at Lista in January 2011. 570 kHz is a frequency which is either dominated by CFCB in Newfoundland and/or Radio Reloj in Cuba at our location. In addition there’s WMCA and WSYR, both located in New York so there’s a lot of competition on this frequency! On the first morning of the DX-pedition we enjoyed good conditions towards the Great Lakes, especially towards Ontario. CKGL was one of the stations benefiting from these conditions and the station was heard quite well for some time carrying Fox Sports Radio.

Engineering Manager Mike McCabe verified my reception of the station with a kind e-mail saying he is surprised the signal of CKGL can be received as far away as Norway. CKGL broadcast an “all news” format with a power of 10 kilowatts.
