The final DXpedition of the summer took us to Chilliwack for a week. I do enjoy using the Grundig G8. The selectivity and sensitivity of the radio continues to amaze me.
The weather change over the weekend did not seam to affect what I was able to hear . I was able to hear these same stations over the course of the week.
I thought that with Chilliwack mountain between Vancouver and my location there would be a 'Nul" on the local frequencies, but all the Vancouver AM stations could be heard with equal strength to those from farther away. Vancouver stations were well heard in the daylight hours as well. Although I was not DXing for FM stations, Vancouver FM stations were also heard.
1550 was of equal strength to other stations from this area. 1600 was not as well heard. There was a very weak signal under CKNW 980Khz which I could not catch.
This list includes several Canadian stations - There are also some stations that have been noted above. I also heard a navigation beacon on 345 Khz (Morse Code: -... -... ______ )
For what it is worth, here as the list I compiled after checking the notes I took with a data base on line. I left out local stations from this Vancouver area and those stations that are not a challenge to catch.
