With 940 now officially vacant

Even at night, when 800 runs 10 kW and 940 ran 50 kW? Also, although
CKLW protects CJAD, the null appears to be mis-aimed by a few degreees
to the north, with the result that CJAD must receive quite a strong
skywave from Windsor (the equivalent of more than 25 kW ND). Given
that peculiarity, I find it hard to imagine that 800's NIF is anywhere
near as low as 940's.

The CJAD array is also kind of an enigma. 195-degree towers but with
nighttime efficiency more approprate for 155 degrees. Suggests design
problems. Also, I suspect that most owners would prefer 940's two
short towers to CJAD's four tall ones, whose predecessors became the
casualties of an ice storm a few years ago.

I would think the 940/690 site could be purchased for a reasonable
price and the 800 site could be sold to at least partially defray the
cost of acquiring the 940/690 site.
