Massive tone on 610 - CKTB?

I can hear Philly talk (Black Info Network) but this solid tone is cranking loud north of Toronto. 23:50 pm EST

I first heard it at around 11:15 PM, but I have no idea how long it's been going on. This is what happens when you put a station on autopilot and there's no one left to fix the problem.

Tone ended 0000 EST and CKTB gave its usual hourtop ID and then news. This tone is what they'd do if testing the transmitter... wonder if something was up in that regard.

It's not uncommon for a 1khz tone to be fed down a line before a feed begins.  Maybe a channel was left up on the board for Coast to Coast.

I heard it last night.  I had to find some station out of San Diego for my Coast to Coast feed.  No Jimberly Richards for this guy.
