Catching the signal of CKSL on 1410 kHz was a pleasant surprise on the otherwise not too exciting March 2013 DX-pedition to Lista. 1410 kHz is usually dominated by WPOP in Connecticut with its sports programming. The signal strength of WPOP is usually so strong that it is hard to pull out any other station on this frequency.
On March 12, I was however able to catch the signal of CKSL for a few minutes in the morning. CKSL broadcasts with a power of 10 kilowatts from London, Ontario. According to Wikipedia, CKSL became the first radio station in Canada carrying comedy programming. The station is now branded just as “Funny 1410”. Don Mumford, Regional Vice-President at parent company Bell Media confirmed my reception report with an e-mail.
