WLNF 90.5 KHz

Logged today: a new FM station for the Toronto log. WLNF, Rapids, NY, on 90.5 MHz at 2025-2035 UTC with a poor signal. English, playing old pop music (e.g., Barry Manilow). ID and announced as "serving Lockport and the Niagara Frontier regions". Only 250 watts. Received on my car radio at Rouge Park in Scarborough.

This is the 159th FM station received in Toronto.

Firedrake Jammer - Maybe

Heard today on 13850 kHz a station that may be another appearance of the Firedrake Jammer. Time: 1255-1300 UTC, good signal. Traditional Chinese music like the Firedrake Jammer plays. Very brief voice announcement in unidentified language at 1300 and then off air. I'm not sure of its identity because the voice announcement is not typical for the Firedrake, and I only heard a few minutes of it. It's possible this is just a regular broadcast station.
