Yes, French 1550 here, and at times over a local (35km) WSDK from CT. Very clear signal at 830km or so. French on 540 has always been fair/poor, with Spanish Speaker (ex-business news) WLIE doing better at night. The Quebec Northern Service CBGA-1 usually did better.

Is CBGA-1 off the air?  I still occasionally hear what sounds like echo from delay between two or more transmitters carrying the CBC French service on 540 kHz.  The top of the hour ID on 540 is not parallel 1550 kHz.  It sounds like a network ID rather than local, while 1550 gives a local ID as CBEF Windsor.
