• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I came across this station out of Ontario, Canada just now here in SW Florida. According to Short-Wave.Info its nondirectional at 1 KW. I've heard it here before but tonight it was coming in pretty well. Is it really only 1 KW or did they up the power recently? My setup is simply an old loopstick hooked up to a DR22C-6 in my third story condo.

CFRX is the International Shortwave rebroadcaster of CFRB 1010 KHz, a MW radio station in Toronto. Both have been around since long before I was born in 1947.

Probably improvement in SW conditions. I heard Radio Amazonia on 11780 khz this evening for the first time in months. I used to hear them on a daily / nightly basis. I think the Toronto transmitter on 6070 is maintained by hams, if memory serves.
