Peak reception time was around 0430 with some good TA signals. Nice to hear a CKGM 690 push its way through the 5-Live splatter on 693 at 0430.
I occasionally hear oldies on 980 when conditions are good to North America. This morning had this mystery station coming in well around 0430, but the peak coincided with the middle of a song. I suspect this is CHRF Montreal but I can never find an ID.
Plenty of other frequencies were alive with North American signals just before local sunrise. Sadly, many of them faded perfectly for the top of the hour, as is all too frequently the case.
