A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Back in the 60's/70's CKWW's antenna used to at the top of the Viscount Motor Hotel next to Hotel Dieu hospital and had great height and probably better coverage. Now I dont know where the antenna is located I dont think its at the antenna farm with AM800/88.7/93.9 out near Harrow.

I believe CKWW’s antenna is north of CKLW’s, closer to Amherstberg.

It's south of Windsor, at about the same latitude as Wyandotte, maybe about 5 miles (or, should I say, 8km, eh?) East of Wyandotte.

It has a very good signal all along the St. Clair River as well, especially considering their 500W transmitter.

CBEF (rest it's soul) had a very good signal. One night about 50 years ago, we were in Kincardine, Ont. As my dad was thinking of buying a cabin up that way.

CBEF had a signal easily stronger than that of WJR. It actually had more power at night (5000w) than it had during daytime (2500w).
