QSL: CKIM Baie Verte NL 1240

The most common station on 1240 kHz at Lista is definitely CKIM. In fact it is so common that it is nearly a pest station ruining reception of other stations on this interesting graveyard frequency. I caught CKIM with a local identification early in the evening at Lista in January 2011, or rather an identification for 620 CKCM as CKIM is a repeater only without any local programming. Later on in the evening CKIM always has regular VOCM programming.

The CKIM transmitter is located in Baie Verte on the northern coastline of Newfoundland. It certainly does well for 1 kilowatt only. Program Director Richard King, who has confirmed several VOCM stations for me previously, confirmed my audio recording of CKIM with a nice e-mail reply.
