Recent FM Loggings

Here are the most recent FM stations I've logged. All were logged from my home in Toronto. Dates and times in UTC.
  1. CBL-3, 90.7, Orillia ON, 2009-08-11, 00:30, CBC Radio One, parallel to CBL 94.1. There was a good tropo opening to the north with lots of Barrie and Orillia area stations booming in. At the same time there was no sign of tropo towards the southwest. So I concluded that this must be CBL-3 in Orillia and not CBL-2 in Paris (which I logged already).
  2. CICX-FM, 105.9, Orillia ON, 2009-08-11, 00:32-00:35, Kicks 106.
  3. WMJQ, 104.9, Brockport ON, 2009-08-12, 23:46-23:50, K-Love - Religious.
  4. WJZR, 105.9, Rochester NY, 2009-08-12, 23:51-00:07, North Coast - smooth jazz.
  5. WCMF, 96.5, Rochester NY, 2009-08-13, 00:25-00:38, Rock music.
  6. WPHR, 106.9, Auburn NY, 2009-08-14, 04:27-04:39, Power 106.9.
And with this set, I've achieved a goal I set for myself when I began this focus on FM DXing in June - to log 100 FM stations from Toronto before the end of the summer. It's tough when so much of the FM band is blocked by local or semi-local stations. But there's more scope to DXing FM from here than I thought there would be when I started.
