I don't have exact dates, but I was able to confirm, based on CRTC approval dates, there has been one other move on the AM band since CHQT: CKST moved from 1070 to 1200. Around 1988, I would guess. There was a call letter change in there, from CKST to CHMG, to go along with the Magic branding, in there somewhere, too.

CKST/CHMG is now CFMG-FM, 104.9 KHz running the Virgin branding, in a three way CHR dog fight.

Nice to hear CFCW this morning without the splatter of News Talk 770. 840 sounds good. :salute:

For posterity, I've capture the last 790 logo used on the top of the CFCW web page. It is still there now.

Still no word on whether Mr. 79 gets a new name, is being laid off or if Mr. 84 will be someone else.

Cannot remember if I mentioned it here, but Mr. 79 was also the name of Hal Yerxa's race horse, kept at the CFCW farm visible from Highway 2 to Calgary.

Can hear it on the east side of Saskatoon. Tuned in Day Pattern. Not overly loud but definitely audible. 790 was splashed by 800 from Moose Jaw.
