This program is timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the station, to the exact date. There will be a special toll-free number given out over the air, and phone calls from distant listeners will be encouraged. The 1580 frequency uses the same directional pattern day and night favouring east and west, at 10,000 watts. The programming has been organized by Wayne Plunkett (long-time DXer) and Douglas Kirk (owner of Durham Radio Inc.).

All written reception reports will be answered. Send reports to:
