Yeah, I know what you're probably thinking...impossible! I wouldn't have believed it had I not heard it with my own two ears and even though I did, I still have a hard time believing it. 

On Thursday February 11, I had a fairly decent signal of classical music which is none other than CJRB Boissevan, Manitoba. I had some spanish language stuff bubble up which I assumed to be XEB Mexico City with was further fueled by some fairly LOUD classic hits music I heard a minute or two later.. Mexican news/talk/sports stations are known to play music at night.

Boy was I surprised AND FLOORED when I heard the station ID. At 1026pm AK Time "Stoney End" by Barbara Streisand faded up very nicely and overtook the channel.. 45 seconds in classical music began to take over but if you listen at about 1 minute 12 seconds, you'll hear "Another hour of great music on 1220 CFAJ Saint Catharines, Niagra"

Here's the audio of it:

What makes this VERY interesting is .. what was CFAJ operating with? They had been testing with 1000 Watts non directional but Scott Fyb ush surmises they are on their 10kw 9 tower night pattern by now. 

Directly from the relevant Canadian databases, here's the 10kw 9 tower CFAJ night pattern: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UtHrS-64kYGL1LKyJKWkCpWbT65H1S4x/view?usp=sharing
