I can get WSEE and WJET with the recent tropo, but can't hold a strong signal on CFTO.. maddening.  All other Toronto/Hamilton/Buffalo channels are fine

Corus uses iMediatouch, not the best out there.  That said, radiokid is correct, watch the clock, eliminate the hard synchs during network time where possible.  That said, not sure how the programming is distributed?  Sat perhaps?  If so, tones are being sent to trigger local breaks, top hour news etc.  All in the clocks...

Cat 3 is differently regulated than Cat 2.. your Cat 3 is spread over the entire week, 6a-Mid, not the 6a-6p and 6a-Mid as Cat 2 CanCon is, so you can in fact "ghetto" the programming.
Not defending, but 12% in a broadcast week can be tough even with evening specialty shows.. that said, package it, promo it and do a damn blues show from 10p-Mid + a repeat Sunday night??  Should be enough hours.
Also, when you play Cat 3, or what you think is Cat 3, can be way off base to what the commish thinks.

Well, here is my setup..
Antenna, dual bay.. one to Buffalo, one to the CN Tower.. CFTO reception is iffy
Amazon Prime.  We use it a lot to buy stuff anyway.  Also now includes e-books
Netflix.. 4 TV setup for UHD
Nvidia Shields with Mobdro, CBC Gem, CTV and Kodi Installed
Nord VPN.. $33 USD per year
DAZN for a couple of months a year for NFL before the networks carry all games.

Netflix $17/month for 4 screens in HD, Amazon Prime I don't really count as it's part of the order online and I want it yesterday, plus it includes their music.  Old grandfathered Google Play music.. $7.99/month.  Antenna in the mix hitting Toronto and Buffalo.  Wife still wants cable for HGTV... jeeeez.  Nordvpn ($33/yr) & Kodi for the rest

Am I being a bit callous here??  Listeners being asked to send all their cash to some "radio" church and have all their prayers answered is different??  Due diligence.

 I think you meant 1998 for the cassette deck and CD player 

I took my '98 to the local dealer for service and they gave me a 2018 as a loaner.  It is equipped with neither a cassette deck or CD player but has Sirius FM which is nice.   But other than Sirius tunes and fancier gauges, it doesn't do anything that my '98 won't do.   

Seriously.


 

Well my 2017 will automatically stop to avoid a collision, keep me in my own lane automatically and maintain distance on the highway from the vehicle in front of me automatically.  My 2002 couldn't do that.  However, no CD player.
