CHOU 1450 Montreal testing
The new 1450 KHz station, CHOU, is now on the air testing. CHOU has a very clear signal for a 1 kW coming off a Valcom antenna. I guess they made the groundwave better than CJWI 1610’s. Even at night it seems to have no trouble. Just automated music for now probably being fed right from the antenna site.
Today I was in a fortified building (hospital) downtown and while waiting I tuned my little radio to 1450 and it came in with minimal interference. Very impressive 1 kW signal. Wonder how they did it.
Sounds like CHOU will be multilingual with an emphasis on Arabic programming. CHOU website: Here is a webpage for Radio Moyen-Orient. It mentions the station coming to 1450 kHz. and boasts a new webpage coming as well, and looking for Arabic speaking hosts: http://www.crmo.ca/
