I don't think so. I believe that CKAC on 730 is a Class B. As far as I know,
730 is a Mexican clear channel, unlike 940, which is Mexican/Canadian.
Canadian stations on 730 are all Class Bs, as far as I know. But because the
status of 940 is different, CBM (while it lasts on AM) is a Class A. the
late CKLM was also a Class B because 1570 is a Mexican (not
Mexican/Canadian) clear channel. The Mexican clears are 730, 800 (kind of a
joke because of PJB) 900, 1050, 1220, and 1570. Mexican/Canadian clears are
540, 940, and (I think) 990. Canadian clears are 690, 740, 860, and 1580.
This may not be a complete list; I did it from memory.
