NPR formatted outfit has departed, station appears fully off. I think this took effect Dec. 1 or thereabouts. Station was recently sold to Crawford and there's a CP to change calls to WDCZ. Presumably that implies a format change to Christian. My hunch is Crawford isn't ready yet to take to the air. Hope this lasts for awhile - I plan to go to Burnt River ON DX site for a week or so next Monday and will enjoy having 970 a little more open. Might this clear some IBlock from 960 and 980?
710 CJRN ON Niagara Falls went off the air earlier this fall, its licence not renewed by the CRTC. Oddly, a fairly low-power carrier remained. That has finally disappeared - about a day or so before the Dec. 1 CRTC-mandated date to vacate. So that'll open 710 a bit. I've done some DX time on 710 the last few weeks and have had a few stations there besides WOR NYC and Rebelde Cuba - stations in WI, VA and KY. Hopefully this will open things up a bit, despite IBlock from adjacents.
