With 940 now officially vacant

One more time, with feeling...Canadian stations are not trying to reach
American audiences (with one or two notable exceptions, like CKEY Ft.
Erie/Buffalo, two of the Windsor FMs, etc.).
The CBC isn't trying to reach distant American ears in New England/or Ohio,
as much as I miss them on 740.
And CJAD is trying to reach Montreal's English speakers, not us.
Thankfully, the CBC has a robust streaming audio service, and I can listen
to CBC Yellowknife on this very smartphone, if I wish.
As much as I love the magic and romance of listening to distant Canadian AM
stations, they aren't gonna spend money unless this mythical upgrade helps
their LOCAL audience.

860 lives on I suspect partly as the CBC/CRTC just doesn't want to
move the french signal in TO to FM. How ironic that you can hear
Radio-Canada in the eastern US but CBC depends on Windsor now.
1070 should have been allowed to live but
I wish CFRB had gotten 740 but the reality is AM in downtown Toronto
is almost useless thanks to the TTC wires.
