CKAC in Montréal often provides a powerhouse signal on 730 kHz at my listening post at Lista. Their signal is so strong that it is very hard to pull out any signal from any other North American station on this frequency. That’s quite reasonable as CKAC broadcast with a power of 50 kilowatts. At Lista in January 2011 it was impossible to hear anything but CKAC on 730 kHz. At this time CKAC broadcast a sports format, the station has since switched to become Montréals first dedicated traffic radio station branded as “Radio Circulation”.
CKAC has long been a poor verifier, but last year several DX-ers got an e-mail confirmation from General Manager Réal Germain. I had to try my luck too, and received a prompt but brief e-mail reply from M. Germain.
