Good to see a new target in Eastern Canada to try for. It's been a long time.

There's been a fair bit of "new" AM activity in Montreal recently.

"new" in quotes as every frequency involved has been used there in the past -- it's more a matter of defunct frequencies being reactivated. 600, 690, 850, 940, 990, 1570, I'm probably missing one or two!

And that's exactly what this is: a former Montreal frequency being returned to the air.

True, but their new night pattern gives us a fighting chance to pick it up to the West. Nice to see some chance of AM signals returning, for a change.
