Was CFRB as restrictive to the southeast in 1941 as they are today?

1010: new Canadian clear

WINS of course protects CFRB but the reality is in upstate NY you
seldom get either ( yet even with the lousy night signal WINS beats
WCBS in the ratings )

Now this is the one where politics had to be involved in Ottawa
800: new Canadian clear

CKLW was moved to 800 but it seems like their signal was designed to
allow CJAD Montreal to be born after the war ended.

I would also like to know the story on how CFCF got hosed completly.
They certainly deserved better than the horrible 600 signal they had.
