Getting some of this. Only time for a quick check at the moment.

Presumed KOTA 1380 with CBS news on the hour but still never strong enough for an ID. 1290 CFRW Winnipeg with TSN 12-90 IDs and good signals. 680 CJOB Winnipeg. 770 Presume CHQR Calgary. 920 CFRY with full ID at 07:01:09 and country music. 930 CJCA Edmonton AB fair religion. 950 Presume CFAM Altona MB with classical at 08:00 and GOOD around 07:00. 1010 CBR Calgary AB with CBC News 06:00. 1060 CKMX Calgary with comedy. Hopefully more later.

Come on Simon ... what ya got on 1590 today? :)

I am really surprised.

One of the initial signs I look for when the Canadian Prairies are coming though is a second carrier on 770. That or hearing CJOB on 680.

It's the left-most of the two strongest carriers. Do you see this on your files?

Yes. There are a few snatches of audio on the 770 carrier, but nothing anywhere near identifiable. 680 is wall to wall WRKO from about 21:30 last night with the occasional CFTR in the mix.

*If* I get chance, I'll post a few screen grabs in the main MW section later to show the Prairie carriers. They are always the same every time the band opens to the Prairies and so give a good indication of the state of the band. I have actual IDs on them too.

More later.
