CBM Montreal QC 940 kHz QSL


The CBM QSL card received in 1976.

The kind verification letter received from Audience Relation Assistant Marcia Morris identified the programme heard as "Midday".

An unexpected follow-up verification letter from Marcia Morris who kindly corrected the programme details heard.

It was a pleasant surprise to receive my first Canadian MW station, CBM Montreal QC on 940 kHz which made it through to Pinelands at 0445 UTC on the 22nd August 1976 via the Siera receiver and 20 metre longwire antenna.

Audience Relation Assistant Marcia Morris kindly verified my report with a QSL card and letter. An unexpected follow up verification letter with the correct programme details was also received.

CBM's FM transmitter went on the air in 1998 and the station's AM 940 transmitter was shut down in May 1999.

Oddly enough, last week the replacement for CBM, CINW, went off the air, also at 940 AM.
