DX Alert- Last chance to log 1350 Oshawa, Ontario

From National Radio Club, comes news about a change from CKDO. Log this while you can.

I have it on good authority that CKDO 1350 in Oshawa Ontario is on day pattern and power, from now until 10 AM this Sunday, then it will go silent. Its replacement, 1580 with 10KW day-night U3 with mostly east-west pattern will sign on 22 hours later, this coming Monday, at 6 am. They apparently plan to use the same antenna. CKDO, under various calls, has been on 1350 since Dec 31, 1955 - over 50 years. The station will mark its 60th anniversary this October 3.
