Latest Loggings on FM

A few more stations for the Toronto FM log. All of these were logged using my new Grundig G8 Traveler II, a little ultralight-style radio that I bought last week at The Source because of the reviews on the web that praise it for amazing DX performance on FM. The fact that I've logged six new FM stations using it shows that it is DX-worthy, although I haven't had enough experience with it yet to say just how good it actually is.

The new Toronto loggings (dates and times in UTC):
  1. CKJN, 92.9, Caledonia ON, 2009-07-12, 23:15-23:40, "The Moose"
  2. CFMU, 93.3, Hamilton ON, 2009-07-12, 23:43-23:48, McMaster University campus station.
  3. CKHC, 96.9, Toronto ON, 2009-07-12, 23:50-00:05, Humber College campus station.
  4. CKEY, 101.1, Ft. Erie - Niagara ON, 2009-07-13, 03:50-04:10, Z101 - hits.
  5. WHTT, 104.1, Buffalo NY, 2009-07-13, 12:02-12:07, Mix 104 - light rock.
  6. WGMC, 90.1, Greece NY, 2009-07-15, 11:30-11:42, Jazz 90.1 - tropo.
I also have one other new FM logging for the overall log, a station I heard while in Milton, ON on the weekend:
  • WUBJ, 88.1, Jamestown NY, 2009-07-11, 15:27-15:32, NPR //WBFO 88.7
