Canada: CFVP 6030 back on the air!

CFVP is back on the air as of 7 am. Two engineers from Bell Media, Dale and Gerry, who are also hams, VA6AD and V6QCT respectively, rebuilt the transmitter (partially with ham radio parts) and repaired the connection to the antenna with a temporary matching network. I am hearing it somewhat faintly here in Walla Walla, Washington but hope reception will improve as the day goes on. The temporary matching network means that not all the 100 watts are going into antenna.
