CFCW Camrose, AB-790
When propagation favours stations located on the prairie, one of the most common stations is CFCW in Camrose, Alberta. In fact this is one of very few non-east coast stations that I managed to get in the log, when I lived in southernmost Sweden. That was in th 80’s and CFCW, on 790 KHz, is still one of my favourites. The programme format is classic country and from time to time, the station is heard with a tremendeous signal up here. On october 28, out on Cape Skagen, I got a pretty good ID on CFCW and I dropped a report via e-mail with an audio clip to the station. Got a prompt answer, also via e-mail, from Doug Mattice who is the Chief Engineer on CFCW, confirming the report. Doug also promised to drop a QSL via snailmail. It’s always nice to get such an old friend as CFCW confirmed again.
A short audio clip is found here. Note that there is a couple of other “more interesting” stations heard below CFCW. Im still trying to figure out what stations these might be…
Anyway, a pretty interesting day today. North America was heard all over the mediumwave band until about noon local time here. However, stations appeared very fast and disappeared just as fast, hi! After that Asia took over and then Europe, of course. Got a few new ones in the log. More about that tomorrow, or maybe on sunday 🙂
