CJRS Radio Shalom, Montreal 1650 to start testing

February 20, 2007 at 8:21 am 1 comment

CJRS – Yes, that’s the official set of call letters for Radio Shalom. We’ll begin testing at 1650 very soon, with a tentative March launch. If you’re interested in participating on-air or behind the scenes in our unique venture (North
America’s first all-Jewish radio station), please feel free to reach me at stanleyasher@…. [truncated]. We’ll also consider some limited programming from various ethnic and/or religious organizations who are presently not served by other Montreal area radio stations (such as those on CFMB, CINQ, CKDG and others). Japanese, Mennonite, Bahai, Bulgarian, and Roma groups particularly are welcome. I’m writing in the dual capacities of long-time RIM member, and VP of CJRS with temporary duties as English-language pgm. coordinator. We’re 1000 watts, and would like to hear reception reports.

    I’ve been listening to your test broadcasts on 1650 (ie: mostly music with station ID) and have made note of QSL remarks. Reception is good until I reach the St. Lazare exit on hwy 40. Beyond that point the signal begins to fade and propagate (at night). In Alexandria, Ontario, where I live, the signal is barely audible with an American station covering CJRS. During daytime, the signal is fair to good. I did notice at times the signal drops for a split second then rebounds back up with some distortion, but nothing serious. I DX mainly AM, FM, and shortwave bands. P.S. Montreal needs a music station. I feel there is too much newstalk. Good luck. 73’s QRT.
