So a little about CHKX's HD signal... It doesn't come in well throughout the GTA, not as clear as CING's HD signal. In fact, it is much more difficult to get the station's HD signal, almost as hard as getting a Buffalo radio station's HD signal, at least here within the Toronto vicinity. Yes, CING does have a stronger overall signal, but CHKX does have peak signal of 100KW. Main reasons why it is harder to get CHKX's HD signal is due to the interference from sister station, CKGE in Oshawa (on 94.9), which comes in quite clear in Toronto. CKGE's signal doesn't seem to be much impacted by the HD signal, but on the other hand, WNED from Buffalo in 94.5, is now barely receivable. I do wonder how this might end up impacting WNED's donations from Torontonians who now have to turn to the internet to hear them, as their FM signal is much harder to recieve because of CHKX's HD operations.
