CRN - CBT 540 Grand Falls-Windsor To Go Dark On Friday

Postby Dan Sys » Sun Nov 26, 2023 10:01 am

10,000 watt CBT 540 in Grand Falls-Windsor. NL will permanently sign off the air this Friday December 1st after completing its conversion to 93.3 FM with 100,000 watts. Some technical difficulties were associated with the FM flip resulting in 540 staying on the air longer than anticipated. The station originally signed on the air in 1949 bringing CBC programming to Central Newfoundland.

CBT 540 has been an Eastern DX'ers delight over the years making Newfoundland a fairly easy catch for the log books. If you haven't already logged them you only have a few days left before yet another Canadian Heritage AM station signs off for good.

(thanks to Andrew Brade for passing on this news)
