Expo Information Radio?

Postby Toomas Losin » Tue Apr 28, 2015 6:21 pm

During Expo 86 there were two information stations on air. One on 1600 and the other on 530, although I only heard 1600. Anyone happen to know where the transmitters were located?

I've been going through my DX station list looking up the coordinates of each transmitter site. The Expo Information Radio site is the most exotic unknown.

I am not 100% certain, but I seem to recall the transmitters for these stations being located around the Hastings & Clark Drive area. 530 was CKEX and 1600 was CKEX-1. I can't remember how powerful these things were, but both of them put out huge signals around 16th & Main where I resided at that time.

Thanks Dan. Those two information stations almost seem lost to history, as the few sites I've seen about Expo 86 don't mention them.
