CFAR Flin Flon MB-590

…not really a big surprise, right? Well, a couple of minutes after receiving the QScfar-590L from CJAR-1240, Dianne Russel also confirmed my reception of CFAR-590. This is also a pretty difficult catch, even for us up here in the Scandinavian Arctic. 590 kHz is usually totally dominated by KHAR in Anchorage, but sometimes the propagation on the mediumwave band gets very selective, favouring stations from a quite limited area. As this morning in AIH, when both CJAR and CFAR was received simultaneously. Quite amazing, actually…

So, there you have it! A pretty nice “double of more or less scarce canadian AM-stations”.


About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
