Re: AM 740 not doing Legal ID

Are you sure that the Toronto 740 _is_ still CHWO? I know those were the
calls when the signal returned to the air earlier this year after being dark
for at least a year. Originally, the new owners had applied for CJPT but the
CRTC denied that for reasons I never heard. I think the co-owned former CHWO
(1250) was renamed CJOI (or something like that) to go with its religious
format. However, I read recently that the CHWO calls were back on 1250 and
740 is something else--maybe CJPT or maybe yet other calls. For sure, not
CBL, and probably not CJOI.
